The June Drop
Your apple and pear tree’s may now deposit lots of small fruit onto the ground, don’t worry this is completely normal. This is known as the ‘June Drop, where your trees are reducing the amount of fruit they carry to successfully ripen those that remain. To ensure you get the best fruit from your trees, it is a good idea to remove the smallest fruit before your tree indiscriminately does this for you.
Sow biennials now in a seed tray or pot, so that they can grow strong roots and foliage before you can plant them where you want them to grow in the autumn. Wallflowers, Honesty, Foxgloves, Aquilegias and other biennials differ from annuals as they develop foliage and roots in one season and flower in the next.
