Where to Expect Cicada Swarms This Summer, According to a Pest Pro

Love it or hate it, the chorus of humming cicadas is a soundtrack to summer evenings. In most years, the buzzing is more like white noise. But, thanks to the double cicada brood we're expecting this year, this sound is promising to be much louder in certain regions of the U.S.

Frances Tophill's guide to June pruning

June has some of the finest weather we experience in the UK. The nights are at their shortest, which means that those in the most northerly parts of the country may never get full darkness, and even at the most southerly points, the evenings are drawn out, long and balmy. This is lovely for us gardeners and crucial to many of our plants. These short nights influence flowering in summer flowering plants, helping fill our gardens with colour and the buzz of pollinators.

I can’t post any fragrance on this blog, but I can share the beauty of the roses along with their varied colour and form, beginning with ‘Olivia Rose Austin’, above, which grows into a neat and shapely bush.

Your gardening questions answered: Are there any slug-proof plants?

Q: We have a small back garden that includes an old wall covered in ivy. I love the ivy, but it has become home to an army of slugs that have eaten many of my plants over the years. I have tried many different things to combat the slugs (ground eggshells, coffee grinds, various different pellets), none of which have really made that much difference. I am also concerned about using products that may harm the birds that visit the garden and our dog. At this stage, I think I have to accept that the slugs are part of the garden and learn to live with them. So, I would like to look at planting some small shrubs and flowers that are not appealing to slugs. I would be grateful for some suggestions. JM

Tried-and-trusted techniques to help plants to grow back more strongly than ever

There are certain nuggets of good garden advice, so counterintuitive that they seem to make absolutely no sense at all. Why on earth, for example, should we pinch out the growing tip of a perfectly healthy seedling or plant stem as a way of encouraging it to fatten up? “Leggy”, after all, is usually a term of admiration rather than opprobrium. Likewise, why would pruning back perfectly healthy shrubs — essentially cutting away their lovely strong shoots and branches- possibly make them bushier and more floriferous when surely it should result in the exact opposite? In the same vein, why is it a good idea to shear back lavender plants that are only just beginning to fluff up again after a long, dark and dismal winter? And what, oh what, is the Chelsea chop, which sounds to the uninitiated like some form of plant abuse?

Your gardening questions answered: How should I plant up my new flower beds?

Q: We got raised flower beds built last year to surround our patio, but have yet to have much success with planting them. I’m wondering what could you advise what to plant to a) offer some height to the area; and b) to be relatively fast growing, to fill out the gaps in the beds, and maybe offer a nice smell? Part of the area gets full sun, and part is shaded. FR, Dublin

Best Plants for a Mediterranean Garden

Mention Mediterranean gardens and you’re likely to imagine alfresco dining, soft colour palettes, citrus trees in terracotta pots and sun-loving perennials, all awash with the heady scents of herbs such as lavender and thyme. But you don’t need to travel to Greece or Italy to enjoy this kind of outdoor living. Mediterranean-style gardens are becoming more popular in the UK as many areas become more susceptible to drought, due to the climate crisis. Planting with species that have naturally evolved to live in hot, dry conditions means your garden will be more resilient in dry periods and more sustainable in its use of water – an extremely precious resource during our increasingly hot summers.

Guide to Growing Great Azaleas

One group of plants you can use to create a blooming bridge between spring and summer are azaleas (Rhododendron spp. and cvs., Zones 3–9). As one of the most popular shrubs in the southeastern United States, they can last for generations with proper establishment and care. On the flip side, poor cultural practices can lead gardeners to disappointment. There are many types: native, nonnative, hybrids, reblooming, evergreen, and deciduous. No matter which type you choose, many of the basics for growing great azaleas stay relatively consistent.

Shrubs are a type of woody plant characterized by multiple stems and a relatively low height, typically below 20 feet (6 meters). They are larger than herbs but smaller than trees. Shrubs are an important component of gardens, landscapes, and natural ecosystems due to their aesthetic appeal, functionality, and ecological value.

They come in various shapes, sizes, and forms, ranging from compact and bushy to more open and sprawling. They can be deciduous, meaning they shed their leaves seasonally, or evergreen, retaining their foliage year-round.

Some shrubs produce vibrant flowers, while others are valued for their foliage, fruit, or bark. In landscaping, shrubs serve multiple purposes. They can be used as ornamental plants to provide structure, color, and texture to gardens, borders, or hedges.

They are often employed for privacy screening, windbreaks, or to create natural boundaries. They can also attract wildlife, such as birds and butterflies, and contribute to the overall biodiversity of an area. Shrubs are relatively low-maintenance plants and can adapt to a wide range of climates and soil conditions.

They can be propagated through various methods, including seeds, cuttings, or grafting, making them accessible to both amateur and professional gardeners. Popular examples of shrubs include roses, azaleas, hydrangeas, boxwoods, lilacs, and forsythias, among many others. These plants offer a diverse array of colors, fragrances, and seasonal interest, making them versatile and highly valued in gardens and landscapes.
