I hope you managed to enjoy some time in the sun over the holiday weekend?
For me, it marks the start of summer. BBQs, family and friends in the garden, enjoying those long hot days and warm summer evenings...
Here are a few quick and easy tips to make the most out of your garden:
Pressure Washing patios / driveways / paths - will instantly refresh your outdoor spaces, like new
Plant bedding plants and hanging baskets for instant colour
Encourage pollinators. Most garden centres now have a section for 'bee friendly' plants and flowers
Neatly cut grass and tidy edges will transform a lawn area. Remember to remove clippings for compost
Trim hedges and topiary
Let ponds breath and sparkle in the sun by removing algae and unwanted weed
Apply good quality tomato fertiliser to fruit crops to encourage them to flower and fruit
...and most importantly keep your garden watered. An evening sprinkle everyday it's dry will keep everything happy!
