With the warmer weather almost upon us, it’s time to get out into the garden and get planting for summer.
Flowering annual seedlings can be planted now. Try petunias, alyssum, petunias and impatiens in beds, pots and hanging baskets for a riot of summer colour.
Dig in that compost. Give your soil a decent feed of quality compost to help summer crops thrive.
Make sure your mulch is up to scratch. It’s the key to keeping in moisture and keeping out pests, so add a layer of bark, pea straw or compost to your entire garden.
It’s also time to start planting summer vegetables. Plant seedlings of lettuce, celery, basil, cucumber and spinach, and if you’re after something cool and sweet you can’t go past home-grown watermelon and rockmelon.
