In The Garden

It’s all about clearing weeds, pruning shrubs and or course taking the time to smell the roses.

Not forgetting to sow fast-growing hardy annuals outside to flower this year.

Put in supports for newly planted dahlias and other tall perennials.

Prune spring-flowering shrubs.

Remove any build-up of blanket weed and duck weed from ponds.

Top Tip:

Use water butts as much as possible and water your containers and baskets well in hot weather.
