Access Care's Top Gardening Tips for July

English garden in July

July is here! Summer has finally started and hopefully your garden is looking blooming gorgeous! Many of our Live-in Carers love gardening! Here are some of our tips on how to look after your garden in July.


It’s time to keep on top of the tendrils of weeds invading your oasis of calm. Remember to weed little and often – this makes it easier to keep on top of especially in the cool of early mornings or late in the evenings of a hot day.

Water, Water, Water

It’s incredibly important to water your gardens especially if we’ve had no rain for a long time but try not to water in the middle of the day when the sun is at its hottest or you could scorch the leaves and damage the plant. Watering the soil around the plant is best to avoid any damage.


Don’t forget to deadhead those roses, lupins and delphiniums by cutting just below the old bloom and above the new bud. They will bloom again during the summer so just be patient.


Promote bees in your garden with simple additions of lavenders or heathers or anything that flowers. There’s nothing better than the drowsy hum of happy bees in your garden!


If it’s a very dry spell, don’t cut your lawn too short to promote healthy grass and try not to panic if it turns brown, rain always comes to England eventually!
