  • 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.
