The Handmade Garden – April tips and jobs

posted in: Articles, In The Garden | 0

April has arrived and there are numerous jobs to get done in our Handmade Garden. The April showers are making the plants and weeds grow very quickly.

The RHS suggest that we:

  • Keep weeds under control.
  • Protect fruit blossom from late frosts.
  • Tie in climbing and rambling roses.
  • Sow hardy annuals, herbs and wild flower seed outdoors.
  • Start to feed citrus plants.
  • Increase the water given to houseplants.
  • Feed hungry shrubs and roses.
  • Sow new lawns or repair bare patches.
  • Prune fig trees
  • Divide bamboos and waterlilies

That little lot should keep us busy shouldn’t it!

I have been searching for tutorials to make your own weeding tools but they seem rather complicated so for this one let’s stick to some that have been made for us.
