Plant the seed
If you want to add a splash of colour to your garden, now is the time to plant your bulbs. Try vibrant purple alliums, delicate freesias or eye-catching begonias if you want to brighten up the flowerbed. And, with the Gardena Bulb Planter, you can ensure they’re all planted at just the right depth.
As the temperature rises, you’ll want to get ahead of any unruly weeds before they begin to germinate. The Gardena NatureLine Push Pull Hoe is ideal for weeding plant beds and garden paths. Made from FSC-certified wood and high-quality steel, the embossed underside of the blade makes removing weeds a breeze. If weeds are popping up on your patio, opt for the Gardena Comfort Patio Weeder. It’s has a double-sided stainless-steel blade that makes removing weeds, moss and grass between slabs effortless.
A lush, well maintained lawn can be the making of a garden. After mowing, use the Gardena Comfort Long Handled Grass Shears to define the edges and stop grass growing into the borders. It will instantly neaten up the lawn.
Pruned and proper
A decent set of secateurs is vital for any gardening toolkit – they will allow you to cut away dying stems, hack back invasive shrubs and keep your plants looking vigorous and healthy all year round.

They come with a 25-year warranty, too, so not only will they achieve a clean, accurate cut, but they’ll also be by your side, season after season for years to come.
