Garden and Gardener's tips of the month - May

May is the month that we hope summer is just ahead and we gardeners can get on with all those tasks that we have been waiting to do outside. However, there may still be some late frosts so watch out for those tender plants and protect if the forecast is not good. As bulbs fade, the herbaceous border spring into life and as always the weeds will try to take over so we need to be vigilant. Lawns need tending on a regular basis now and its time to take any softwood cuttings as we, and they, enjoy the warmer temperature the month hopefully brings.

10 jobs for the month;

1, Sowing and planting out bedding can begin.
2, Regularly hoe off weeds
3, Mow lawns weekly. apply a high nitrogen summer lawn fertiliser, remembering to follow manufacturers instructions
4, Plant any still remaining seed potatoes and start to earth up those showing
5, Lift and divide any overcrowded spring-flowering bulbs
6, Plant up bog gardens. There are many beautiful plants such as Iris which enjoy a damp spot
7, Except for wildlife ponds, start stocking ponds with any new fish as soon as new plantings have established. Fish in wildlife will upset the natural balance and eat frogspawn
8, Do not clip hedges where there are any nesting birds. Make a thorough check before proceeding.
9, Watch out for viburnum beetle and lily beetle grubs, regularly inspect plants, and also the structures of the greenhouse and conservatory for pests. keeping structures and paths clean and free from fallen compost, leaves and debris will help prevent the spread of pests and diseases
10, Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm days
