What to do in your garden in August

All Regions

August may be a windy month, and can still get miserably cold, but it is also the month when you really start reaping the rewards of your carefully planned winter and spring flower garden; and as the month progresses the displays will just get better and better - banishing even the worst of the winter-blues.

When in full bloom, Azaleas are irresistable, so visit your garden centre this spring to select your very own favourite, favourites!

Azaleas and Rhododendrons must be one of the best-loved sights of spring, when their brilliant blooms are produced in such abundance, they almost totally smother the leaves. And, although these popular ornamentals bloom for only a relatively short season, by selecting various species, and newer cultivars with different blooming times, the blooming season can be extended greatly.

With the proper care and a favourable rootstock, a citrus tree is capable of producing fruit in excess of 50 years!

Citrus trees can be so pretty, even in the smallest of gardens. They have gorgeous shiny green leaves, beautiful sweet-smelling flowers, and wonderful health-giving fruit packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. The genus Citrus is native to south-east Asia, occurring from northern India to China and south through Malaysia, the East Indies and the Philippines, and records of domestication go back to about 500 BC.

The Saucer Magnolia is a magnificent tree or large shrub and one of the most sought after ornamentals.

Saucer Magnolia, Persmagnolia (Magnolia x soulangiana) Magnolias have a long history as magnificent additions to the garden, no matter the time of year, but especially in late winter and spring when their naked branches are festooned with startling cup, or saucer-shaped flowers.
