ALLOTMENTS ASSOCIATION'S GUIDE TO GARDENING AUGUST

Hoe weekly to stop weed seeds germinating. Cut down uncultivated areas and spray re-growth with Bio Glyphosate (100ml £1) ready for next season. Scatter slug pellets (845g £2.50). Apply path weed killer (£2 r.t.u). Water plants thoroughly, do not waste time & water by indiscriminate spraying. Top-dress containers with horticultural 4mm grit (£5.50). Feed weekly with Maxicrop (£2.50 ltr) or Phostrogen (160 can £4.30). If going on holiday arrange for a friend to water plants in containers, frames, greenhouse, outdoor tomatoes, marrow's, courgettes & cucumbers. Tell them to pick ALL sweet peas, courgettes, french & runner beans as these will stop producing if left on the plant. Stock up with ‘Restaurant Quality’ lump wood charcoal (12kg £10) for those impromptu barbecues.
