Spring Gardening Tips

Gardening - Equipment Flowerbed In Sunny Garden

Check out our top tips on things to do in the garden this spring:

  • Prune roses to a forward facing bud and wisterias to 2 or 3 buds.
  • Cut back buddleia, dog wood, willow, ornamental grasses and summer flowering clematis to a pair of buds just above ground level.
  • Apply a layer of bark chippings or mulch to your garden borders to help suppress weeds and improve soil moisture retention.
  • Plant your summer flowering bulbs, pansies, and lift up and divide overgrown clumps of perennials.
  • Prune any ornamental garden trees to ensure they remain healthy, safe and in good shape.
  • Scarify your lawn to allow the soil to absorb more oxygen and accelerate growth.
  • Turn your compost heap to give it an influx of oxygen that will speed up the decomposition process.
  • Give your garden fence a new lease of life with a fresh coat of paint whilst you can still get to it.
