The month of May is with us, with longer days and (we hope) more heat in the sun!
So far, spring has been reasonably kind to us, though we have a few late frosts to cause us worry. Let’s take a look at what we need to do in the garden this month.
Spring is definitely with us as the days lengthen and there is more warmth in the sun. Our trees and hedgerows begin to show a tinge of green and this is mirrored by the plants in our gardens.
We are heading into a busy gardening month, so let’s take a look at those tasks to work on in April!
March is with us and lets hope we will have a good, warm start to get out in the garden and get growing!
February is with us, bringing hopes of an early spring to brighten what has been a difficult winter! Strange though, how through the last couple of years, our gardens have proved to be our inspiration and salvation.
A new year and a new beginning to another gardening season!
Those of us fortunate enough to have a garden during the Covid period have been so lucky over the last couple of years, enjoying physical and mental exercise and probably gaining a lot of knowledge in the process!
December already and where has the year gone? It seems to have passed in a flash!
This year saw many new gardeners appear as well as encouraging some whose passion may have lapsed over the years!
As we move into winter, it’s you might think there’s not much to do in our gardens, but you would be wrong, December can be a hive of activity!
One of the great things about keeping a diary is that you can learn from it and this is especially true with a gardening diary. Varieties, sowing/planting dates, soil and weather conditions, pest and disease control, temperatures and rainfall, all can provide useful information to plan your gardening year for 2022.
Autumn is with us and let’s hope the good weather continues, to raise our spirits and shorten the winter!
The gardening year gallops on at speed and what a strange summer it’s been! In spring it was cold with light levels low, so much so that it was difficult to get things growing. Then suddenly it turned hot with real downpours of rain and it was a job to keep up with everything!
Let’s take a look at what we need to be doing in September!
August has arrived, it is high summer and yet again we feel blessed if we are fortunate enough to have a garden! Right now, plants are flowering in abundance and the vegetable plot is in full production of tasty, healthy produce. So, let’s have a look at what we need to do to keep our garden looking fantastic!
