Here are some other jobs to be getting on with this month, unfortunately some of it is hard work:
Check compost bins to see if you have any compost that’s ready to use.
Improve the drainage of heavy soils by incorporating plenty of organic matter.
Top up raised beds with compost and good quality topsoil.
Top dress containers with fresh compost. If your containers are already full, replace the top 5 cm of old compost with fresh stuff.
Keep on top of weeding now that the weather is warming up. Run a hoe through beds and borders.
Apply weed killer to perennial weeds in paving and patios.
Look out for signs of pests and diseases, early prevention is easier than curing an infestation.
Remove dirt from your paths and paving before summer arrives. Use a pressure washer or special patio cleaner.
Buy fresh potting compost from your local garden centre and store it in a cool, dry place in preparation for the season ahead.
Invest in water butts. Position them under a downpipe to make the most of rainfall.
Top up bird baths and bird feeders to encourage birds into your garden.
