What to do this Month - August


  1. You can still sow quick maturing salad crops such as summer lettuce, radish, rocket, sorrel, chicory and fennel.
  2. Continue to sow spring cabbage, turnips, Oriental vegetables and overwintering onions
  3. Sow green manures such as crimson clover and Italian ryegrass to act as a soil improver and to cover bare areas. When dug in, they conserve nutrients and improve soil texture.


  1. Plant out rooted strawberry runners.
  2. Water cranberries, lingonberries and blueberries regularly with rainwater. Tap water will do if butts run dry.
  3. Loosely tie together new blackberries and hybrid berry canes.
  4. Prune out fruited summer raspberry canes and tie in new ones.
