Your June Gardening Check List - Wonder

Can you feel that bite in the air? Winter has arrived… Which means a whole new season of gardening wonders we get to explore! Need a list of what needs to be done in your garden? Follow out winter gardening checklist below and tick off the points as you go!

Maintenance

  1. Winter isn’t as busy as the warmer months. Use this downtime to sort out your gardening equipment. Sharpen and repair tools, and use car wax to lubricate any stubborn shears!
  2. Time for all those little jobs you haven’t had time to do: recycle any old pots and trays, check fences and paving etc
  3. Now is the perfect opportunity to reposition any plants that are looking a bit sad! Keep in mind that most plants need about 6 hours of sun to survive in winter.
  4. Keep note of any deciduous perennials – AKA plants that shrink back in winter but have their leaves all year long! This will keep you from digging them up.

Feed

  1. Give your soil a little boost before the cold really hits so your plants will really thrive this winter! Try Wonder Organic Vita-Boost Vermicompost.
  2. Your roses will also need to be fed. Use our Wonder Fruit and Flower 3:1:5 (26) SR for the best blooming roses! Water them once a week and keep an eye out for the dreaded black spot.
  3. Encourage more blooms by picking flowers often, and feed them Wonder Colour Boost.

Cut

  1. Time to any plants that flowered in summer and autumn.
  2. Protect your lawn from the cold by allowing it to grow a bit longer until mowing it in winter. This is especially important if it’s in a shaded area!
  3. Set a reminder to prune roses at the beginning of July to stimulate new growth in spring! Use our Wonder Deluxe Bypass Pruner 8″
