  • Inspect plants regularly for signs of pests and diseases. Plants growing strongly are less susceptible to attacks.
  • Newly planted trees and shrubs will need to be well watered until established.
  • On warm days, cool down your greenhouse by opening the vents and doors.
  • Collect rainwater in a water butt and water your plants for free.
  • Overcrowded clumps of daffodils and other spring-flowering bulbs can be lifted and divided once they have flowered.
  • Weeds grow fast at this time of year. Regularly hoeing them off now will save a lot of work later.
  • Early-flowering clematis, such as Clematis montana, can be pruned immediately after flowering.
  • Check for signs of white fly or red spider mite under leaves and on shoot tips and treat immediately.
  • The seeds of Parsley, Coriander, Radish and Spring Onions can be sown outside.
