Sunshine and showers

Spring is finally in evidence as daffodils and flowering trees start to bloom. Expect the inevitable April showers this month but with sunny days too, when you can turn your attention to the lawn. It’s an exciting month, with indoor-sown seeds well into growth, and it’s also time to start sowing outdoors. Just watch out for frosts…

Keep weeds under control

Protect fruit blossom from late frosts

Tie in climbing and rambling roses

Sow hardy annuals, herbs and wild flower seed outdoors

Increase the water given to houseplants

Feed hungry shrubs and roses

Sow new lawns or repair bare patches

Prune fig trees

Divide bamboos and waterlilies
