Weekend Garden Jobs
Can’t believe that the end of April is nigh and that the weather is so ghastly feeling more like winter than Spring apparently tomorrow (Saturday) is supposed to feel warmer – fingers crossed that bank holiday Monday isn’t a wash out either. I am still reluctant to put my chillies which I started in the propagator and our now living on my kitchen windowsill, into the greenhouse as we have had a couple of really hard frosts this week and I’m sure that they would’ve succumbed.
I myself will hopefully get to plant my onion sets which have also been sitting in the kitchen.
If the weather is kind and you find yourself in the garden here are a few jobs for you:-
If you have grown daffodils in grass don’t be tempted to mow or strim off the dead flowers/stems until 6 weeks after they have finished flowering otherwise you could end up with blind daffodils (no flowers) next year. However, overcrowded Daffodils that have finished flowering can now be dug up and moved.
Tie in climbing plants.
Mow the grass and trim the edges.
Nerine’s, Lily’s & Gladioli can all be planted now for summer colour.
Sweet peas can still be sown directly into the soil.
Keep weeding those borders.
Put up supports for taller perennials – as they grow the foliage will hide the structure.
Hope you all have a fabulous bank holiday weekend whatever the weather Enjoy!
