Now that the daffodils are flowering and the trees are in bloom, Spring is definitely here and whilst you can still expect plenty of showers, there will be sunny days too and a chance to get out into the garden … just keep an eye out for Jack Frost!
Here are some gardening jobs for you to do this month:
Get weeding – keep your weeds under control
Protect any fruit blossom from the frost
Tie in climbing and rambling roses
Sow seeds – hardy annuals and herbs
Feed any citrus plants
Give your houseplants plenty of water – they will drink more now that it’s warmer
Feed hungry shrubs and roses
Repair bare patches in lawns or sow new seeds
Divide bamboos and waterlilies
Prune fig trees
Mow lawns when necessary
Feed large aquatic plants
Use a stiff-bristled brush or pressure washer to remove algae from paths.
Install decking or other seating areas for summer use.
Towards the end of the month, in mild areas, you may be able to plant up your hanging baskets for the summer.
