August is often a warm month and that requires extra attention to the care of your garden. Watering is the most important in August. Don’t forget to fill the saucer with water for the birds and hedgehogs in your garden!
When you go on vacation, ask neighbors or family to water your plants. In the vegetable garden you make sure that as much as possible has been harvested before departure. You can also install an automatic water system to provide your plants with water.
Flowers and borders
Plant fall bulbs. Amaryllis also does well in your garden, not just indoors. Alstroemerias are also recommended. Autumn bulbs give your garden exotic flowers. The Kliplily (Nerine bowdenii) is from South Africa and she needs a dry, sunny location. Sandy soil is fine, they don’t like too much fertilizer. Especially in tubs sheltered by a southwestern wall. Autumn crocus (Colchicum), which resembles the crocus, also blooms in September.
