Things to do this month

1. Lawn Cutting
Lawns should be mowed at least once a week over the rapid growth period

2. Lawn Weeds
Apply a lawn weed killer this month to remove any and all weeds from your lawn. Weeds such as ‘Selfheal’ may require more than one application over the summer months

3. Beds
Should now be regularly hoed or clawed to keep weeds down to the minimum

4. Hedges
If you need to trim your hedges check for nesting birds before starting

5. Plant Supports
Install supports for plants that are top heavy such as peonies

6. Aphids
Check for aphids on roses and other plants producing new shoots

7. Watering
Now your watering systems should be underway

8. Crops
Cover with netting to protect your crops

9. Tender Plants
Protect tender plants from late frosts

10. Tomatoes
Start pinching out greenhouse tomatoes




summer is round the corner...

As bulbs fade and herbaceous borders grow in leaps and bounds, it is now clear that summer is approaching. Sowing and planting out bedding can begin, depending on regional weather variations, and you can take softwood cuttings. It's also time to get back into the lawn mowing regime, as the lawn will be loving the warmer temperatures this month brings.

5.0 Five Star Garden Maintenance

Honest, reliable, garden maintenance, an extremely nice family firm

Mr Burchett was able to provide a very competitive estimate for clearing a community garden and boundary hedges. He arrived on the specified date and carried out all the works quoted for and cleared up afterwards. He and his colleagues are quiet and hardworking. I would recommend Nicenstripy to anyone.
