Jobs for the Garden in April

Spring is finally with us and the daffodils and blossom trees are starting to flower. It is a lovely time of the year to start spending more time out in the garden. To keep your garden looking its best throughout the growing season it is a good idea to start as you mean to go on by keeping on top of the jobs as they crop up.

Top 10 jobs this month:

  1. It's the perfect time to plant.  Why not visit for inspiration on what to plant to plug those gaps!  (Or book Consultancy Visit for ideas and advice.  Read more>>).

  2. Protect fruit blossom from late frosts

  3. Tie in climbing and rambling roses

  4. Help to improve and feed your soil with a good mulch. Keep weeds under control (the mulch will help and we stock fine composted bark for just that job)

  5. Trim formal hedging such as box

  6. Increase the water given to permanent planting in pots.  Turn irrigation systems back on after winter.

  7. Feed hungry shrubs and roses

  8. Sow new lawns or repair bare patches

  9. Prune fig trees

  10. Divide bamboos and waterlilies
