flowers on a bright sunny summerHow quickly the year is going. May is upon us and it’s time to get sowing and growing!

Here are our top 5 tips for garden productivity this May:


  1. Dahlias and corms of gladiolus should be planted where they are intended to flower.
  2. Summer bedding flowers, such as petunias and verbenas can be planted up.
  3. This warm moist weather brings slugs and snails, so be mindful and remove offending creatures.
  4. Ensure that your bedding plants are well spaced out to maximise blooms in summer.
  5. There is still time to sow resistant annual flowers for a spot of colour around your garden later on in the year.
