April in the Garden
Its finally starting to feel like spring, Easter is around the corner and the garden is starting to grow. Days are brighter and it feels like time to get into the garden. Or maybe you are wondering how to spend the lovely Easter days? Here are some ideas -
Nights can still be cold so it is important to protect fruit blossum from frosts. Use fleece over smaller plants if a frost looks likely.
Trees, shrubs and hedging may be hungry and could benefit from a dressing of a slow release fertiliser such as bonemeal.
Climbing and rambling roses, clematis and honeysuckle will be springing into life. Tie them into place and train them to go where you want them.
Some bulbs will be finishing and can be deadheaded in April. If you have an indoor hyacinth that has finished flowering, pop it in the garden for next year.
Plenty to be doing over the Easter weekend and all month. Enjoy the garden.
