Spring moves on into May, so let’s hope for a more settled, warmer month following April’s sun, rain, and even snow! Generally, it was a cold yet relatively dry month. So we have some catching up to do in the various areas of the garden. Let’s take a look!
The year draws to a close and what a difficult, stressful year it has been for us all! But through it all, many of us have found solace in the garden and many people have started growing things for the first time.
Clear up and tidy! A bit of thought and action now will prevent trouble next year.
Autumn is with us and lets hope for good weather, to raise our spirits, shorten the winter and give us time to attend to all those essential garden chores.
In the herbaceous border you can take and root cuttings from perennials such as fuchsias, pelargoniums and Salvias.
