Prune for more berries on Pyracantha
Prune wall-trained Pyracantha, removing any shoots coming out from the wall and shortening other new growth to about 8cm (3in). This encourages spur formation and increased flowering relative to green growth.
Keep on top of pond weeds
In ponds, continue to remove blanket and duckweed. Don’t introduce goldfish into wildlife ponds.
Move conservatory plants outside
Some conservatory plants such as Cymbidium (orchids), Yucca, and citrus trees can be moved outdoors.
Watch out for pests under glass
Regularly inspect plants, and the structures of the greenhouse and conservatory, for red spider mite, whitefly, thrips and other pests. Control with biological controls, and hang yellow sticky traps to help monitor numbers of flying pests.
