April Gardening Tips

Whilst the inevitable April showers and occasional frosts may put a dampener on some of your gardening plans, daffodils are now everywhere, and flowering trees are starting to blossom. You can really start to see your garden waking up again! 

Pink Blossom

What jobs should we be cracking on with this month?

  • Ensure you have working guttering and a water butt to make use of the rainfall
  • On warmer days open your greenhouse to circulate air
  • Empty compost bin
  • Sow new lawns, or repair patches that have suffered over winter
  • Stay on top of weeding
  • Pick off faded flowers and dead leaves
  • Plant outdoor varieties of tomatoes, chillies, and courgettes in pots, ready for planting outside later in the year
Citrus Tree
  • Feed citrus plants, and indoor plants
  • Herbs, salad leaves, beetroot and wildflower seeds can be sown outdoors
  • As can sunflowers!
  • Feed roses, and tie in if they’re a climbing variety
  • Check for aphids on plants, and wipe off before they multiply
  • Protect young plants from slugs and snails
