Jobs to do in the garden
Spring has arrived (nearly!)
With the clocks going forward and the extra daylight suddenly most of us want to be out in the garden again!
There is much to be done during April in preparation for the flowering season, so plan your gardening jobs well. The increased warmth and light brings an explosion of growth to the garden and with the unpredictable weather you should make the most of dry spells and get your seeds sown when you can.
This is the month to give the garden a good feed, just as the growing season kicks in. Digging in home-made compost or a fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone is a good idea for shrubs and trees. Your lawn will benefit from a feed, as well as a first cut if you haven't already done so.
