Spring is about controlling weeds, planting, pest control and fertilising. Here are our essential jobs in the garden this month.
Time for Tomatoes
Now is the time for planting tomatoes & all your other summer vegetables. Prepare your beds by adding new compost & sheep pellets.
Love Your Lawn
Get your lawn sorted now to get it looking great for summer. Use a Weed n'Feed product to feed your lawn and kill off weeds. If there are any bare patches, sow the area with lawn seed.
Mulch, mulch, mulch
Laying a thick layer of much on your garden beds will help to suppress weeds and reduce the need for watering as temperatures start to rise.
Feed & Fert
Feeding plants with a liquid fertiliser like 'Thrive' regularly through spring to autumn will help keep your plant healthy & looking great. Also ensure you have fed with a slo-release fertiliser like a general granular feed and sheep pellets too.
Protect From Slugs & Snails
Use pet & child friendly slug & snail pellets, such as Quash to protect new seedlings & plants such as Tractor Seat & Renga renga lillies.
Time to Plant
There is still time to plant before summer hits. Roses, hedges, hydrangeas - plant now, water well & feed with a slow release fertiliser to get them settled in before summer.
