It's time to...

  • Replenish gravel and grit mulches around alpine plants
  • Put slug barrier products around the tender new shoots of hostas and perennials
  • Dig plenty of compost into heavy clay soils
  • Cut down marginal plants around ponds, and mulch with compost or bark
  • Once house bulb displays have finished flowering, plant them outside and water in well with a liquid feed
  • Mow paths through areas of long grass and meadows to avoid walking on bulbs and wildflowers
