Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs

  • Weed growth can be very strong now and it is important to deal with weeds as soon as possible, taking advantage of the first dry day to hoe weed seedlings.
  • Sow some more carrots, broccoli, lettuce and peas, and thin out vegetables that have reached suitable size.
  • Sow Savoy cabbage and other winter cabbage and cauliflower varieties.
  • Tender vegetables, such as sweet corn, outdoor tomatoes, pumpkins and runner beans can be planted out after hardening off. 
  • Spray apple and pear trees for scab disease if there has been weather favourable for scab.

Greenhouse and House Plants

  • Train greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers and melons on strings tied to wires in the roof or use canes,
  • Use a greenhouse shading material now if the house is inclined to get too hot.
  • Continue to feed greenhouse plants every two weeks to get good growth before mid-summer and continue to water well.
  • Spray a grapevine with rose spray if it shows mildew on the leaves - the spray will keep the fungus off the tiny grapes that are now developing.
  • See www.garden.ie for more information.
