Plant dutch irises – choosing a sunny position to plant.
Check tree and climbing plant supports.
Repair any damaged fences before the bulbs and plants begin to shoot.
Check autumn sown sweet-peas and if you haven’t done so pinch out the tops to encourage bushy growth.
Plant bare-root trees and shrubs.
Remove leaves and debris from around the garden as these can harbour pests and diseases.
Check paths, patios and decking for signs of algae and clean as if left can become extremely slippery.
Make the most of any dry weather!!
