Hints & Tips
The warmer weather that we are set to enjoy going into the summer season – combined with the longer days – mean that now is one of the best times of year to get to work growing new plants in the garden.
Indeed, this is also one of the most fulfilling times of year to be a gardener, as you can keep working long into the evening without realising how late it is getting.
In an article for the Guardian, professional garden and landscape designer Dan Pearson said that he often stays out until 22:00 before he realises he hasn't eaten yet!
In terms of practical tasks, he claimed that this is the ideal time to get growing verbascum, foxglove, hollyhock and linaria.
For those who intend to do a lot of sowing, why not have a look at MowDIRECT's range of cultivators and tillers, which are great for turning and maintaining the soil between plants.
