August is a month of plenty in the vegetable garden, and harvesting is the order of the day. All the summer vegetables will be in full flow by now, and you’re likely to have plenty of french beans, peas, potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, courgette and runner beans. The vegetable patch will look very green, with mature plants covering most of the soil, and there will be lovely splashes of colour from the runner bean and courgette flowers. If the weather is very dry, don’t forget to water your patch.
We’ve split the gardening jobs for this month into 3 sections to keep the pages short.
