Spring has sprung! Here are some things you can be doing in your garden during April.

  • Keep weeds under control by hand weeding or herbicide. It’s advisable to hand weed early season as the weed growth will not be as heavy
  • Protect the flowers of fruit trees by covering with fleece to prevent frost damage
  • Sow seeds of annual plants and herbs either under glass protection or in situ
  • Increase watering of house plants
  • Feed shrubs and roses with a balanced fertiliser such as Growmore or blood, fish and bone
  • Repair bare areas in grassland, or prepare and sow grass seeds for lawns
  • Gently prune lavender to reduce leggy growth
