Start planting out your summer bedding towards the end of the month now that the late frosts should have finished. These include planting your summer hanging baskets and planters. If you don’t have time to do these, we have a beautiful range in stock for you to choose from.
Now that your spring bulbs are dying back, don’t be tempted to cut the dead foliage off, instead, dead head them and let them die back naturally and feed the bulbs with general purpose liquid fertiliser such as Tomorite – this will give an even better display next year.
Prune the dead stems of early flowering clematis after flowering.
Tie in climbing plants such as roses and sweet peas.
Feed and water container plants – don’t forget about them, just because it’s not been very hot, doesn’t mean that they don’t need additional water. Make sure you use the right type of feed for your plants. If you’re unsure, please speak to a member of the team.
