COCKERMOUTH ALLOTMENT & GARDEN ASSOCIATION


The gardens are full of colour and the vegetable plots are providing their bountiful summer harvest.


Dead heading of roses and flowers in the borders continues. Watering and feeding of baskets and pots continues whilst we decide what bulbs and seeds to order for autumn planting and for next year’s displays and crops. It is rather odd to be doing all this at the same time but this is why gardening is so interesting and diverse, nothing is ever the same.


Trained fruit trees should be pruned this month with all the new side shoots pruned back to two sets of leaves to promote the forming of fruiting buds. The leaders of apple and pear trees which have not yet reached the allotted space should not be pruned but tied in as the vigorous growth needs to be maintained until it is as long as we wish, then these should be pruned as side shoots.

Plums, cherries apricots and any other stone fruits are pruned during this month so the cut branches quickly seal and reduce the risk of the trees been infected with the fungal disease silver leaf which will reduce yields and ultimately kill the tree. Prune these in the same way as apples and pears.


There has been some recent published


research about the benefits of gardening. It details the number of calories burnt whilst doing various jobs in the garden, from grass and hedge cutting to watering, weeding and planting. It also describes which muscle groups are used. The conclusion was that gardening in any form is good for us, as most muscle groups are exercised and strengthened, and the exercise is generally not strenuous but thorough. Gardening should never be a chore, if done little and often, problem areas can be cleared and weeds kept under control so the shrubs, flowers and produce can be enjoyed whilst we benefit physically.


A number of our members gardens were open for both The Children’s Society garden open day and for the NGS. A combined sum in excess of £2000 was raised for charity. A big thank you to those who opened their gardens and to those who visited.


If you have been inspired by a visit to any garden, do come along to our next meeting on the 29th August at The Swan Inn on Kirkgate at 7.15pm for 7.30pm. We will be discussing all things gardening.
