Flower garden job checklist

31 - 6 April 2014

It's time to...

  • Fill gaps in flower beds with primulas and polyanthus
  • Prune forsythia and flowering currants as soon as flowers have faded
  • Leave daffodil foliage intact for at least six weeks after flowering to regenerate bulbs, so they'll bloom again next year
  • Plant out groups of gladioli in borders
  • Sow sweet peas directly outside at the base of obelisks or supports
