Dig In

The ground is warming up and drying out after a very wet winter and the Spring jobs are mounting up:

  • Start planting your summer flowering bulbs and plant out forced bulbs from indoor winter displays.
  • Top dress your containers.
  • Get on top of your weeds before they get on top of you!!
  • Plant new and divide established perennials.
  • Feeding – essential for all plants and particularly for fruit trees after last years mega harvest.
  • Ideal time to mulch to show off plants and keep weeds suppressed as long as your soil is warm and dry enough.
  • Dig in lots of organic matter for your beds.
  • March/April is the best time to plant deciduous plants and April/May is better for evergreens.
  • Remember to guard against rabbits.
