  • Continue to mow and Apply a lawn weed killer if required. Feed with a high nitrogen fertiliser Evergreen Extreme Green will encourage a healthy green lawn.


  • Now is the ideal time to plant asparagus, and it is still not too late to plant seed potatoes. Earth up potatoes using a hoe to pull up soil when they are about 9 inches high.


  • Gladioli and Dahlia tubers can be planted directly into soil now for flowers later in the summer.


  • Keep an eye on the weather Frosts can still be expected until the end of the month, have some fleece handy and cover any plants that might be affected.
