You can transplant your peonies in August

The garden was in top form in August. Before autumn slowly begins to set in, there is still a lot to do with gardening in August.

There is still a lot to do
In August there is not so much to do in the garden. But there are still some things you have to do. We have put together a few tasks for you here that you should do in August. Here are our 8 tips:

  1. Withered flowers should be cut off regularly so that the flowers can bloom for a long time. Most of the perennials form new flowers again and again.
  2. You should now cut hedges. But don't do this in the midday heat.
  3. Now it's time for a slight pruning for lavender too. The shoots are shortened by about 1/3. The big pruning then takes place in spring.
  4. If you have large perennials in the bed, now is the best time to share them. Dig them up and share them with a spade.
  5. If your peonies have grown too big, you can transplant them now. The plant should always divide the plants.
  6. Now is the time to plant steppe candles, lilies and evergreen trees. Don't forget to water or slurry the plants well.
  7. Do you have box trees in the garden and do you want to shape them? Then August is the best month for it.
  8. Water a lot this month when August is very dry. The plants will thank you with lush flowers.
