Week 4: 18th April

To Do: 

  • We've got a great selection of summer flowering bulbs available now - make this the year when your garden comes alive with lilies and gladioli.
  • If you are eyeing up rhododendrons and other acid-loving plants, buy a pH test in-store and test your soil. If you need to increase the acidity of the soil, mix ericaceous compost into the ground around the acid loving plants.
  • The tomato seeds you sowed earlier will be ready to thin out into single pots now so they transplant better later.

To Enjoy:

  •  Why not create a bird-friendly garden as the nesting season gets into swing? Put up a nesting box and place some nesting materials such as dog hair, feathers and hay around the garden.
  • If you have a pond you might see a little more activity in it around now.
