April checklist…..

April checklist…..

Well, I didn’t think I would be writing April’s checklist with several inches of snow outside the door!

This time last year the temperature was in the high teens.

So, weather permitting some poetic license with April’s list of jobs for the garden.

1) Tidy and re-shape lawn edges with half-moon.

2) Sow half hardy herbs such as coriander and basil on a windowsill.

3) Dig out perennial weeds before they self-seed.

4) Plant seed potatoes outside.

5) Plant perennials

6) Scarify lawns

7) Deadhead camellias

8) Prune winter heathers

9) Pinch out sweet pea tips

Happy gardening…………..Freddie
