Give your lawn a Mow-hican haircut this May and help boost the bees and wildlife in your garden.
Your established plants will be producing fresh young growth, so watch out for a late frost and cover susceptible plants overnight.
In May, the air temperature is rising, and the same applies to the soil temperature. This means that the grass really grows, and that it is possible to plant flowers, vegetables and fruits in the garden and in the greenhouse.
May sits on that lovely cusp between spring and early summer. As the whole garden comes to life, you should be able to see the results of your hard work earlier in the year in that beautiful green centrepiece. And as we’re now well into the mowing season, I’m going to focus mostly on that this month – for some mowing means a gentle stroll up and down the garden daydreaming about everything and nothing, but good mowing requires more concentration – and is well worth the effort.
