Well it’s now officially the threshold of spring so we thought you might like these tips to help the new gardening season start with a flourish!

  • Complete any unfinished digging and winter pruning
  • Clean up the ground in between strawberry plants, take off the old leaves and apply a top dressing of a general fertiliser.
  • When the weather becomes milder, prepare your beds in to which seed will be sown directly.
  • Plant out your early potatoes and don’t forget to keep planting out at regular intervals. Bear in mind you might need to protect them from frosty weather.
  • Plant out onion sets, shallots and garlic before they start to produce shoots.
  • If you can offer greenhouse protection, sow celery, celeriac, french beans and cauliflowers.
