Jobs for the garden this spring

It's a very busy time in the garden. Here are some jobs which we'll be undertaking this spring:

  • Applying a thick layer of quality organic mulch to borders, which we've tidied and weeded

  • Lots of pruning. For example bush & shrub roses & dogwoods

  • Preparing ground for laying new turf or sowing lawn seed in early spring

  • Cleaning/tidying greenhouses and polytunnels in preparation for use

  • Sowing crops for the greenhouse such as tomatoes & early carrots

  • Planning vegetable gardens and starting to plant crops outside such as early potatoes and onion sets

  • Starting the first lawn cuts of the year

After what seems like a long winter it’s nice to see some early spring colour from the bulbs and tubers we planted. Examples are Anemone blanda & Narcissus ‘Spring Dawn’
