Keeping everything colourful

July can be a time of  year when lots of gardens become very green, and flowers fade in the heat of summer, but you can encourage more flowers and colours with regular dead heading.  This is one of my favourite garden chores, and can be easily done when pottering in the evening with a glass of wine in one hand.  Geraniums, Erysimums, Roses and Salvia, and many more can be given a lot more life, just by nipping off any spent flowers regularly.
