With another (mostly) sunny bank holiday weekend out of the way, it gave us plenty of time to get lots of gardening tasks done with a few days to catch up.
Spring is in full swing, which means there are a whole host of flowering plants to enjoy, and it’s not only the sight of them, but the wonderful fragrances that come with them too. These are my top ten plants for May to put a spring in your step.
When it comes to planning planting schemes, it’s important to consider the type of soil you have and the access to water. If your garden doesn’t get much moisture, or you grow in containers that are hidden from the rain, these drought tolerant plants are a great place to start.
Throughout May there is plenty to look forward to again. On Wednesday 11th May I’ll be going live on Facebook with Yard Force to share my tips on seasonal lawn care and planting up hanging baskets.
This month also marks the return of Chelsea Flower Show in spring for the first time in 2 years, so get that Chelsea look with some of the past trends. As always there will be some spectacular displays to see. At the flower show this year, Harkness Roses’ newly launched Platinum Jubilee Rose can be publicly seen, and you can be in with a chance to win your very own in my giveaway below.
