After the winter months of chilly weather, the longer days and noticeable signs of spring are so rejuvenating. The signs and sounds of nature reawakening is our cue to get outdoors. It is a time to start preparing our garden and plant pots for the new growing season.
Our first signs of spring are the vivid displays of colour from ornamental fruit tree blossoms and bulbs. This marks the start of a busy time for gardeners. The more we do now the greater the chances of a healthy and successful burst of summer colours.
Here we share a few important gardening tasks to get you going from this week end through to late April.
With the warmer weather you will be wanting to sit outdoors and marvel at your hard work. To make that space extra special, scrape the moss and dirt from paving and patio. The Cultimate weeder is the perfect garden hand tool for removing weeds from between paving blocks.
With so much going on for gardeners in April and the enthusiasm of planting and preparing, we still need to be frost aware. Keep an eye on the weather forecast for frosty nights and lay out fleece to protect vulnerable plants and shrubs.
With so many reasons to get outdoors, The Grumpy Gardener has a number of garden hand tools, plant pots and bird food to help create your special outdoor space.
In closing, why not listen to this series of podcasts to how to make the most of your outdoor space. As part of the Garden Escape series, Will Gowing is joined by gardening expert, Michael Perry and also Joe Smith from The Grumpy Gardener…….
Happy gardening as always!
