Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs

  • Take advantage of any chance to sow vegetable seeds if the ground is right ... most kinds can be sown now.
  • Control weed seedlings between vegetables as soon as they come up by hoeing on a bright dry breezy day. It is easier to get rid of weed seedlings when they are still small.
  • Onion sets can be put in now.
  • Potatoes can be planted.
  • Apply some potash to fruit trees or a fruit fertilizer to improve growth and yield but not rich compost or manure when tends to promote soft growth and diseases.
  • Spray apple and pear trees against scab diseases if the trees are of susceptible varieties and had scab last year.

Greenhouse and House Plants

  • Feed and water heavily all greenhouse plants, and repeat every week or two weeks to boost fast growth.
  • Sow sweet corn and runner bean seeds  in the next two weeks for planting out at the end of May.
  • There is still time to sow seeds of sweet peppers and chilli peppers.
  • Check all greenhouse plants for greenflies and other pests now.
