April

Out and about in the garden

Mulch your rose & shrub beds. A layer of chipped bark on top of the soil helps to suppress weeds & retain water.
 

  Give your lawn some spring treatment & start to mow regularly.


Feed your trees, shrubs & hedges as they start their growing season.
 

 

In the veg patch



Fast growing crops such as lettuce, salad leaves, spring onions, radishes & parsley can be sown every 2 - 3 weeks for continuous cropping all summer
 


  Watch out for slugs & snails!


Prick out & pot up seedlings when they have developed their first true leaves
 

  Harden off young plants that will be planted out to acclimatise them to cooler conditions.


Plant early & late potatoes in well prepared soil. Earth up shoots coming up of any previously planted potatoes.
 

  Plant tomatoes in pots, growbags and even hanging baskets
