Gardening Facts & Tips: (new tip added every week)

May

  1. A good month for sowing new lawns, try to water first thing in the morning or last thing at night to make the most of water supply.  Also try to recycle water where possible using water butts etc.  Birds will be nesting during May, try not to disturb hedge rows until later in June.  Mow lawns on a regular basis and try to keep weeds to a minimum, now the clocks have changed the additional sun light and expected heat encourage rapid growth. 10th May 2020
