Your local family run Garden Centre

Dundry Nurseries has come a long way since the first seed was sown by my Grandfather, Robert Palmer, in 1947. I`m now the third generation of the family to run our traditional nursery and garden centre, and along with our friendly, experienced staff, we pride ourselves on our gardening knowledge. We are always happy to give a helping hand or answer your questions. At our site, between Cheltenham and Gloucester, we produce a varied range of home grown bedding and vegetable plants, and alongside this we offer all the essential ingredients for successful gardening.

We are also famous for our seed potato selection, which is second to none. We are proud to offer over 100 varieties, and all are sold loose. We look forward to welcoming you soon to Dundry Nurseries.

Jobs this month

  • Make sure you have a source of water ready available for birds and other garden wildlife, like a bird bath, and make sure to top them up regularly
  • Water fruit and veg plants DAILY, especially in extreme hot weather
  • Prune all summer flowering shrubs, such as climbing hydrangeas, once the blooms are finished
  • Keep on top of weeds as they compete with your crops for nutrients and water
  • Water evergreen shrubs like camellias and rhododendrons thoroughly this month to make sure that next year`s buds develop well
  • Keep patio container plants well watered and feed with a liquid fertiliser every fortnight
  • Stake tall or top-heavy dahlias and lilies to prevent wind and rain damage. Dead-head lilies for a better flower display next year
  • Dead-head annual bedding plants and perennials to encourage them to flower into the autumn and stop them self-seeding
  • Cut back faded perennials to keep borders tidy
  • As penstemon flowers fade, cut them back to just above a leaf to encourage more flowers
  • Cut back herbs now to encourage a new flush of tasty leaves you can harvest before the frost
  • Prune wisteria after flowering by removing all the whippy side-shoots from the main branch framework to about 20cm from their base (about five leaves from the main stem).
  • Trim any lavender plants after they`ve finished flowering to keep them compact
  • Collect ripened seeds and store them for next year. Leaving some seed heads in place can be attractive and allows the plant to self-seed in the surrounding soil
  • Mow meadows now to help scatter established wildflower seeds
  • Take cuttings of your favourite tender perennials such as pelargoniums and fuchsia to propagate them for next year.
  • Finish dividing clumps of bearded Iris now so they have time to form roots and flower buds for next year before the cold weather arrives
  • Prune climbing roses and rambling roses once they`ve finished flowering (unless they’re repeat-flowerers in which case leave them)
  • Net Brasiccas to protect them from pigeons and insects
