SPRING

 

IT’S SPRING – AT LAST

HELLEBORES ARE AT THEIR BEST, THE DAFFODILS ARE STILL COMING THROUGH AND THE SNOWDROPS ARE NOT YET FINISHED. THERE ARE SOME WONDERFUL DISPLAYS IN LOCAL GARDENS.

NOW IS THE TIME TO GET OUT INTO THE GARDEN AND GET PLANTING.

ITS THE LAST CHANCE TO START SWEETPEA SEEDS IN THE GREENHOUSE FOR GOOD FLOWERS WITH LONG STEMS THIS YEAR.

BROAD BEAN SEEDS CAN STILL BE SOWN FOR THIS YEARS CROP.

START PLANNING YOUR VEGETABLE GARDEN AS SEEDS CAN BE PLANTED OUTSIDE FROM LATE MARCH.

IF YOU STILL HAVE ACCESS TO SEED POTATOES THESE SHOULD BE CHITTING AND BE READY TO GO IN FOR FIRST EARLIES FROM MID MARCH, SECOND EARLIES FROM EARLY APRIL AND MAIN CROP FROM MID TO LATE APRIL.

WHILST ENJOYING THE SPRING BULB DISPLAYS, NOW IS THE TIME TO PLANT BULBS FOR THE SUMMER. BUY LILY BULBS NOW AND PLANT AS SOON AS YOU GET THEM HOME AND YOU WILL HAVE FLOWERS FOR MANY YEARS.

DONT FORGET THE RHS SPRING PLANT & ORCHID SHOW 20 – 30 MARCH

AND CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW 23 – 27 MAY.
