Keep on deadheading
Check for beetles and weevils
Sow seeds in batches
Some seeds are best planted just after collection, and others may need specific climatic conditions to break dormancy (e.g. some alpines). If unsure, then sow seeds in ‘batches’, i.e. one immediately after collecting, one in winter, and one in the following spring.
Black spot and scab
Look out for and treat black spot on roses and scab on Pyracantha.
