July
All the hard work that was done earlier in the year has paid off now and the garden is at its peak and a blaze with colour in the borders. Roses are at their best and baskets and containers are a riot of colour. The veg patch should be starting to give bumper crops and now is the time to start harvesting and preserving the delicious fruits, pickling and freezing crops for winter use. Hopefully summer is being good to us and we have plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy the long warm days.
