May Jobs of the month

May is the time of year in which you'll be as busy as a Bumblebee - with the two bank holiday weekends there is no excuse not to be in the garden!

 

  • Now is the recommended time to deadhead those late flowering Daffodils, and Tulips, letting the foliage die back naturally. 
  • If you're fortunate to have a large Bluebell patch, lift and divide so its beauty can be seen across the garden.
  • RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be in full swing this month - it's time to complete the Chelsea chop!
  • Spring flowering shrubs can now be pruned back. 

 

Looking good 

  • Looking Good This Month: 
    Iris, Campanula, Alcea, Geum, Geranium, Peonies and Rhododendron

 

Top Tip 

  • At the moment, the lawn should be mowed every second week however as the weather gets warmer this will become more frequent.
  • Perennials which are busy and congested will benefit from being divided. 
  • As expected, Summer sun and plenty of watering will helps weeds make an appearance - try and keep on top of these before they get out of hand!
