10 reasons to visit Glendoick this month

The Beach is back!

The Beach at Glendoick

... if you can't get away to a hot destination this summer, at least we can provide a dry sandpit with exotic posters..., complete with buckets, spades and balls for children to play in.

Tables and chairs run alongside the beach for parents and carers to sit and enjoy their cuppa whilst watching their charges playing in the sand.

Open every day from Saturday 11th June until the end of summer.

Jobs in the garden in July and things you might need

 

Weeds can be a problem at this time of year. The Roundup Touch Weeder is perfect for getting at weeds in your shrub borders: just paint on the weedkiller to the plants you want to kill and avoid the ones you want to keep. Excellent for Brambles for example.

Watch our for aphids/greenfly in hot weather: we have lots of ways of getting rid of them, both organic and non-organic.

Feed your tubs and containers at this time of year to keep them going all summer long. You might need: slow release, liquid and granular fertiliser. Liquids are best for containers, and granular feeds for the garden: lawn, fruit and vegetables.

Time for some new furniture or a barbecue? This is the time of year you'll get the most use out of it. Glendoick always has a good range of benches, tea for 2 sets, furniture sets and barbecues.

 

Watering

This is the time of year that you might need to get out and give the garden a good soaking, assuming we get some good summer weather.  Glendoick have hoses, sprinklers, watering cans and all the accessories for fitting hoses to taps. We also have a range of multi head guns for all sorts of watering uses.
