Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - BEAUTIFULHOMES -

Pinch out any green shoots ap­pear­ing on var­ie­gated shrubs and trees

Clear spring-flow­er­ing plants and pre­pare the ground for re­plant­ing

Dig up and dry off tulip bulbs once they have fin­ished flow­er­ing to make way for sum­mer bed­ding

In­tro­duce new fish to the pond

Trans­plant bras­si­cas grown in seed beds

Con­tinue to sow main­crop car­rots, au­tumn cab­bage, peas, let­tuce, radish and Swiss chard

Sow frost-ten­der veg­eta­bles in­clud­ing courgettes, French and run­ner beans, and sweet­corn, di­rectly into the ground

Mow es­tab­lished lawns weekly

In mild re­gions, move ten­der conservatory shrubs out­side

Use new potting com­post for plant­ing sum­mer bed­ding, as these plants are go­ing to be grow­ing for around five months and need all the nu­tri­ents they can get
