Garden Tips – May
May is a brilliant month to get out in the garden. Are you making plans to get yours ready for the Summer? Here’s a few ideas to get you in the mood!
Plant summer bedding plants – May is the perfect time to plant summer bedding plants such as petunias, marigolds, and geraniums.
With the risk of frost now passed – sow vegetable seeds – You can start sowing vegetable seeds directly into the ground or into pots in May, including beans, peas, lettuce, and courgettes.
Mow the lawn regularly – As the weather warms up, the grass will start growing faster, so it’s important to mow the lawn regularly.
Weed the garden – Keep on top of weeds by hoeing them regularly or pulling them out by hand.
Prune spring-flowering shrubs – Once spring-flowering shrubs have finished blooming, prune them back to maintain their shape and promote new growth.
