Alex is busy in the garden making the most of the rain. Here are his top jobs for taking advantage of the wet weather.
WEEDING | Now that the soil is lovely and soft, weeding will be a much easier job. Try using a daisy weeder to get all of the roots out.
PRUNING | Now is the time to prune back any plants that have just finished flowering. As a general rule of thumb, prune by a third.
PLANTING | Digging is easy while the soil is damp and plants are easier to establish. Plant summer herb and vegetable crops now.
MULCHING | Trap all of the wonderful moisture that is in the soil by laying a thick layer of mulch. What mulch is right for you? Take a look here.
FERTILISE | All of your plants will be actively growing with the recent rain. Take this time to spread fertiliser around the garden and the lawn to encourage lush summer growth.
