Last month we had some lovely sunny spells, and with lockdown restrictions being gradually lifted, many people are preparing their gardens for summer socialising with family and friends.
To ensure your garden is looking great, use my top ten plants for colour in May, and give your plants a boost with spring feeding. The lawn, container plants, bulbs, and houseplants will all enjoy some extra nutrients at this time of year to bolster growth.
Mental Health Awareness Week runs from 10th-16th May, and this year the theme is ‘Connecting with Nature’. As a firm believer in the power of plants and the positivity they harness to help boost wellbeing, there are many ways you can immerse yourself and connect with plants and wildlife. Whether you are focusing on your indoor plants, taking solace in your garden or going on woodland walks, you can benefit from the positive impacts of nature.
This month is also a great time for growing fruit and veg, so if you didn’t see my latest Facebook Live with Evergreen Garden Care last week, you can catch up on all of my tips here.
This month you can still see me join Alan Titchmarsh on Spring into Summer on Mondays at 8pm on ITV1. Tune in for more advice on how to keep your garden looking stunning through growing season.
