May Gardening Tips
May Gardening Tips.
Despite the recent cold snap, summer is definitely on the way. Bulbs are beginning to fade and herbaceous borders are growing strongly.
You can start sowing and planting out bedding and now's the time to really get into your lawn mowing regime (perhaps starting with a new lawnmower..?).
Other jobs include:
Protecting tender plants from late frost.
Regularly hoeing off weeds
Opening greenhouse vents and doors
Checking for nesting birds before clipping hedges
Watching out for the first pests of the year
