Revive hardy geraniums
Hardy geraniums can be cut back a little to remove tired leaves and encourage a new flush of growth.
Extend flowering season of roses
Continue to deadhead roses, to extend flowering into early autumn. Spindly specimens that have lost leaves can be cut back a little further when deadheading, to encourage new growth.
Deleaf cordon (intermediate) tomatoes
Remove lower leaves on cordon tomatoes and pinch out the top of plants to concentrate the growth into the fruit that has formed – 5-6 trusses per plant.
Cut back aquatic plants
Keep an eye on aquatic and marginal plants, removing faded flowers and yellow leaves, and cutting back where necessary.
Stop runner beans
Pinch out the tips of runner bean plants once they reach the top of their support.
