July Gardening Tasks

Early July is a good time to take softwood cuttings of shrubs and perennials. You can take cuttings of your own plants or perhaps ask a friend or relative if you can visit their garden and take cuttings of plants you don't have.

See our easy step by step guide for instructions on taking softwood cuttings.
