Video: Calendar Cheat Sheet For July. What Needs To Be Done In The Garden, In The Garden
In this article, we would like to remind you of the things that gardeners and gardeners face in July. You can find a detailed description of certain actions in the relevant articles, but here we also provide a short reminder list.
July is usually the hottest month of the year. If July is dry, watering is the biggest concern. Water depending on rainfall and soil moisture. Pay attention to the rock garden and lawn. The lawn must be shed by 10-15 cm. Water the conifers whole or "bathe". Don't forget to water the compost heap. After rains and watering, it is advisable to loosen the tree trunks and the aisles of vegetable plants. Loosening must be done carefully so as not to damage the plant roots.
Weed control continues in July with the same intensity as in June. It is useful to combine weeding with mulching so that moisture after watering is retained better. Collect the weeds in containers and cover with water. After fermentation, use for root dressing.
Around cherries and plums, it's time to remove the root growth.
Pay attention to root crops, if they are too out of the soil, it is possible to slightly huddle them.
Cut and cut
In summer, some of the branches on fruit trees dry up. In this case, they must be cut off, and the cut sites must be covered with garden pitch.
Do not forget to pay attention to the grapes: remove stepchildren and pinch the shoots.
At the same time, you can start cutting shrubs such as roses and hydrangeas. At the beginning of July, cuttings of conifers, for example, juniper and thuja, are possible.
In July, continue planting herbs and onions on the feather. Plant perennial vegetables such as sorrel and chives.
It's time to plant daikon, turnips and winter radish. Planted in July, turnip and daikon keep well throughout the winter.
Also in July, you can plant siderates: mustard, phacelia, lupine for green fertilizer.
We collect berries
In July, raspberries, gooseberries, currants, cherries and other berry crops ripen. Recall that 4 weeks before picking berries, you must stop spraying plants with chemicals.
We scare away birds
To protect the harvest of berry crops from birds, you can use bright shiny strips of fabric or foil on trees, wind vane rotors. A net, draped over a tree or bush, also repels birds well.
Protecting ourselves from diseases and pests
Another concern of July, for many, is the protection of tomatoes from late blight. In July, you may need to protect cucumbers from spider mites, stem or root rot. In mid-July, you need to protect yourself from vegetable flies.
Twice a month we feed roses, dahlias, chrysanthemums, gladioli, lilies. We feed fruit and berry crops with phosphorus-potassium fertilizers, followed by watering. An excess of nitrogen can cause stunted growth of young shoots and in winter they can freeze out.
We remove the faded inflorescences and collect the seeds
In July, remove the already faded inflorescences, leaving a few necessary ones for the seeds. Also collect ripe seeds of perennials and biennials. Do this when the inflorescences or bolls dry up.
Tying tall plants
To make tall plants even and look good, tie up and strengthen tall flowers: dahlias, gladioli, chrysanthemums, mallow.
Bulbous crops such as tulips and daffodils can be dug up in July. In July, lilies are propagated with bulbs, bearded irises are divided.
After harvesting, watering, fertilizing, weeding and loosening, removal of whiskers in the aisles are carried out. It is possible to rejuvenate (cut) old plants and plant new ones.
In addition to protection against late blight, in July, they carry out punching (trimming the tops in order to accelerate ripening) of tall and medium-sized tomatoes.
Apple and pear
In July, according to the fruits remaining after the June discharge of the ovaries, it is possible to determine the expected yield of apples and pears. If the crop is expected to be bountiful, place tree supports under the branches. It is necessary to regularly remove fallen fruits to prevent the spread of pests and diseases.
