Feed the fruit
The lucky among us who are already growing their own strawberries can start feeding them to encourage better fruit.
Method in mulch
Mulch really does help prevent water loss and stunt weed growth, and it gives your gardens a smart, well-tended look.
Gladioli, dahlias and peonies are all available this month and can be planted out as soon as the soil has dried out enough to be dug over.
If you’re in a dry area, or looking towards a dry summer, check out irrigation and watering systems to keep water wastage to a minimum.
