THINGS TO DO IN THE GARDEN THIS MONTH
Be inspired by visiting the International Garden Festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire, which runs from 21 April until 6 November. Monitor the growth of climbing roses and tie in stems so that they’re horizontal to encourage plenty of blooms. Give all roses a feed to encourage healthy growth. If not done during the autumn, there’s still time to split perennials or transfer plants growing in the wrong places so that they have time to get their roots down ahead of the summer heat.
