Jobs to be doing this month include:
• Continue to remove faded flowers on spring bulbs but not the foliage until it has withered.
• Keep borders weed free.
• Mulch borders if not completed last month.
• If the weather is mild then trim weak or straggly growth of sage and rosemary.
• Penstemons – Cutback last years stems down to the new growth – if the weather is very cold and frosty delay until end of the month.
• Check evergreens for any frost damage – lightly prune if necessary.
• If not already done so start sowing and start mowing.
