April Top Tips

Lettuce-cocarde1. Sow everything else that you have not so far. Pumpkins and squashes and all remaining flower seeds.

2. Begin a gentle hardening off process for young plants that will soon go out i.e. ventilate the growing rooms/greenhouse/polytunnel well. We call this growing hard.

3. Cut the grass whenever you get the chance and put all the material on the compost heap.

4. Muster up as much energy as possible to keep adding compost to beds and borders.

5. Keep a very wary eye out for slugs and snails. These are waking up now and can be very damaging. Check underneath pots and trays and go out before bedtime with a torch.
