Week 1: 28th March

To Do:

  • Plant trees and shrubs now and they will have a chance to get established before summer.
  • Prepare soil in raised beds or open ground by adding soil improvers such as chicken manure pellets, home-made compost or well-rotted farmyard manure. Our staff will be happy to give advice if you want to improve your soil and you're not sure what you need.
  • Sow tomato seed in trays or pots and place them on a kitchen windowsill to encourage germination.

To Enjoy: 

  • Set up an Easter egg hunt to get everyone in the garden this weekend.
  • Take a closer look at the daffodils in bloom - they come in all shapes and sizes. 
  • Take pictures of your favourites so you can find the bulbs in-store in the autumn, ready for flowering next spring.
