What A Wash Out!

So, it looks like May is threatening to deliver the April showers! The weather is hardly cause for gardening inspiration but don't let that stop you from tackling a few jobs.

Now is the time to plant up hanging baskets. Once planted, leave in the greenhouse so they can develop and fill out, before hanging out at the end of the month.

Talking of greenhouses, you can also plant your tomato plants, courgettes, and cucumbers into beds or growbags under glass. Be careful with cucumber plants though. If they are overly wet and get chilled they will rot off at the base. It's best to water away from the plant and to do so sparingly.

Our advice on a cold weekend like this is to get settled in the greenhouse and set to it! Or pay us a visit. It'll get you out if the house.

Our next post will be on ideas for your hanging baskets.
