1. Set up a water butt to collect showers in preparation for the long, hot summer ahead!

  2. Start mowing and edging the lawn regularly for a really good finish – heighten the cut for the first few cuts.
  3. Remove weeds before they get too big and unruly.
  4. Keep up with potato planting and direct sowings of carrot, beetroot, spinach, chard, rocket and parsley.
  5. Indoors sow pumpkins, courgettes, runner beans, french beans and sweetcorn into pots.
  6. Start to harden off young plants with protection for planting out – keep a careful eye on the weather forecast.
  7. Save your seedlings by checking out nooks and crannies for slugs.
  8. If you have to use slug repellent, we’d recommend Advanced Slug Killer as it doesn’t harm the birds.
  9. For a small wildflower area with a bit of ‘wow’ factor, dig, weed and rake the area level, broadcast sow a packet of volcanic meadow mix and watch things bloom!
  10. Get the kids on board with our fun to grow range; they can even make their own pots.
