When will the weather warm up! With such a cold start to the year many of us still have seedlings on our window sills and in the greenhouse. May is a month of planting out, so lets hope the weather improves so that we can!

Jobs to do this month:

• Plant out tomatoes in unheated greenhouse
• Prick out seedlings as they grow
• Sow vegetable seeds outside
• Sow frost sensitive crops under glass
• Harden off plants outdoors
• Plant out vegetable plants but protect from cold and slugs
• Earth up Early Potatoes
• Harvest rhubarb – yay!
• Mulch strawberries with straw and our soil conditioner to keep off pests or plant in hanging baskets
• Put up wigwams or cane supports ready for runner and climbing french beans
• Plant herbs in containers
• Continue to sow hardy annuals
• Apply our natural liquid fertiliser to your lawn and all your seedlings
• Plant up hanging baskets, but keep protected until frosts have gone
• Feed flower borders with our soil conditioning mulch and our liquid feed
• Plant out Rhododendrons and Roses
