Things To Do In May

For those of you thinking of growing more vegetables this year the latest edition of “Grow Your Own” magazine contains 10 packets of seeds that more than covers the cost of the magazine, which then goes on to give details as to how to get the best from them.  With many of you confined to home there should be more time to do the following in May:

  • Watch out for late frosts and protect tender plants.
  • Plant out summer bedding at the end of the month (except in cold areas).
  • Earth up potatoes and plant any still remaining.
  • Regularly hoe off weeds.
  • Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of daffodils and other spring flowering bulbs.
