It’s such a relief to see the warmer weather of spring and summer with all of the flowers bursting into life. All winter I looked at my garden thinking I really want to get back into growing vegetables this year and I’ve now made a start! I’ll be able to enjoy my produce and share the excess.
I will start the season with tidying, digging and adding compost to the garden. Seedlings can be propagated or sown inside or outside; but watch out for the late frosts and protect any tender plants. I’ve cut my late flowering clematis and already it is climbing up the trellis again.
Mowing the lawn becomes a routine once again and roses need to be pruned to maintain their shape and health. In late spring cuttings can be taken from shrubs and perennials and half-hardy annuals can be planted outside such as begonias, dahlias and bedding plants. Colourful hanging baskets can be displayed and dead-heading flowers maintains their longevity.
I hope you enjoy the spring and summer season and can relax and enjoy the warmer weather.
