- Apply a layer of mulch around your perennials, trees and shrubs before the hot weather arrives. Use organic matter such as well rotted manure.
- Lift and divide perennial plants now to improve their vigour and create new plants for your garden.
- Divide Hostas before they come into leaf.
- Divide Primroses after they have finished flowering.
- You can start to move evergreen shrubs and trees now provided the soil isn't frozen or waterlogged.
- Continue to plant herbaceous perennials.
- Check any tree ties to make sure the tie is not cutting into the trunk. Loosen any that are tight to allow the trunk room to expand.
- Check that your container plants are not drying out - warm weather will quickly affect soil moisture levels.
