During May we can start clearing spring bedding from the borders as well as containers. Be sure to dig in a balanced fertiliser at least 7-10 days before planting the long awaited summer bedding.
Our 10 pack summer bedding is now just £1.99 each or 3 for £5.00. We also have our 10.5cm Geraniums priced at just £1.50 each or 4 for £5.00.
Dead head spring flowering bulbs, however do not cut the foliage back yet, as the foliage would be responsible for the taking up of nutrients to store in the bulbs. These nutrients will ensure yet another colourful spring display the following year.
Plant out Dahlias that were lifted or any other Dahlias that were brought on in the greenhouse, plant out towards the end of the month. Allium giganteum is starting to bring some life to the borders, and if you don’t have any in there I’d highly recommend you get some sooner rather than later.
