It's time to...

  • Move plants from greenhouse to cold frame, to acclimatise to cooler temperatures before planting out
  • Dig out new ponds and water features
  • Clean and sharpen secateurs and garden knives
  • Buy summer-flowering bulbs now, while the best choice of varieties and colours are available
  • Treat emerging shoots of perennial weeds like ground elder with glyphosate-based weedkiller
  • Repot succulents that have overgrown their containers
