With the Easter holidays now in sight, spring is in swing and it’s the official start of the Gardening season. Some recent sunny days have started to bring our gardens to life. Now is the perfect time to get outside, enjoy the weather and get on top of those garden jobs.
Cut the lawn
Be sure to raise the blades on your mower. Keep an eye on the weather forecast, now would be the perfect time to apply a spring feed, ideally just before an early spring rain shower or two.
Tidy Trees and Shrubs
It’s now time to re-shape them, remove lower, damaged, dead or diseased stems and branches.
Feed & Weed your soil
If you already have a compost heap this is now the time to empty it out and feed your borders with it. Before spreading compost it is essential to thoroughly weed your beds and get rid of any perennial weeds.
Plant Summer Bulbs
Lilies, Tigridias and Gladioli’s are ideal in pots and borders. These beautiful flowers will be perfect for cutting in the summer to brighten tables and kitchens.
