Why does my garden look raggedy?
I was wondering if anyone else's garden looks a bit raggedy after all the May / June perennial flowers have finished?
I'm beginning to think something is wrong in my garden (or I'm doing something wrong!). I started the growing year by replenishing the borders with my own homemade compost, putting in slow-release fertiliser (Vitax Q4), and mulching with Strulch. For awhile my garden looked very good. But now, many of my plants seem to be suffering a bit - wilting or browning or yellowing leaves, lots of snail damage, little growth. In general, the garden looks a bit rubbish (my honeysuckle is turning brown. I don't know if it's just that the roses and geraniums have had their first flush and other spring flowering plants are done, or if it's suffering from lack of feed / water / sunshine, or even too much water. I try to water well at least once a week. Last year I seem to remember July was filled with flowering plants.
On the plus side, at least my Japanese anemones are developing flowers...
