Make new Strawberry plants
Strawberry plants normally have four good years till their yield reduce and need to be replace. A cost-effective way to do this is to let the plantlets they produce on their runners touch the soil. Once this has happened, they will quickly put down roots and establish. At the end of August, the newly rooted plantlets can be planted out into a new bed or pot with plenty of compost.
Watering Camellias, Azaleas and Rhododendrons
Camellias, Azaleas and Rhododendrons develop their buds in late summer, this means that the display they will give in the following spring, is created over the next few weeks. Ensuring they are kept watered is essential, if they become dehydrated the bud will drop off before they flower.
