April

 

 

Now spring is here, plants will be putting on growth and so will benefit from a feed. Use a fertilizer that is long-lasting such as bone meal or blood,fish and bone. Whatever fertilizer you use follow the instruction as too much can kill plants!

Many types of vegetables can be sown outside but some tender plants such as tomatoes and peppers should be sown inside and planted out when there are no signs of frost.

Spring flowering shrubs can be pruned now, but wait till they are finished flowering. Pruning normally consists of taking out the shoots that have just flowered. Always take out dead and diseased shoots first.

Houseplants are beginning to grow so should be fed and watered regularly. They can also be transplanted or for established pots just scrape away some top soil and add new soil such as John Innes No3.

Happy Gardening and don’t forget to send me your gardening questions.
