I'm Jane Moore, a professional gardener with more than 25 years' experience. My 11 year stint at The Bath Priory Hotel has given me my proudest achievements; the creation of a National Collection of plants and last year I won the prestigious International Relais & Chateaux Gardens Trophy. STIHL shares your, and my, passion for gardening, which is why they have asked me to bring you the very best in gardening know-how for summer.
June is the perfect time to plant out young plants that you've grown yourself or bought from the garden centre or nursery.
Regular mowing is by far the best route to keep a lawn looking good – cutting little and often is the mantra.
Although you might not expect it, June is a busy month for pruning. It's the perfect time to cut back tender sub-shrubs after the danger of frosts has finished.
A good hedge frames a garden, adds structure to a border and can be a head turner in its own right.
