too late for spring pruning. bedding plants, maybe wait for a couple of weeks, ground is still too cold. mulching and weeding is on my agenda, and tending to seedling inside to be ready for planting out soob.
- dividing perennials and things like bamboo - moving around plants that have outgrown their place or are in the wrong place - planting out first batches of perennials or biennials I've hardened off in the cold frame (e.g. primulas, aquilegias, foxgloves) - deadheading spring bulbs - ordering nematodes to cope with the slug problem caused by a mild winter (still need to do this!) - thinking about mowing the lawn! (I need to do this by hand for a bit because there are bulbs in it that are flowering. Fortunately, it's small).
At the allotment, I'm planting asparagus and potatoes this week, and tying in my espaliered trees more tightly.
In the greenhouse, I'm:
- sowing some April seeds, ready to plant out after the last frost in May. Things like sweetcorn, courgettes, pole beans - potting on seedlings I've already got on: tomatoes, chillis, aubergines, celery, celeriac, cosmos, dill etc. - still bringing things indoors if it's cold at night. I have an app called IFFT which texts me if there is going to be a frost below 5C
