Spring is one of the best times to start or revitalise a vegetable garden. Mix through plenty of compost or Scotts Osmocote Compost Premium Soil Improver before planting out a huge range of warm season crops including; tomatoes, strawberries, corn, beetroot, cucumbers, zucchini and beans.
Amongst your edibles plant basil, oregano, rosemary, sage, thyme and marjoram
Once the risk of frost has passed – it’s time to plant snapdragons, marigolds, petunias and geraniums.
Zinnias, dahlias and sunflowers are best planted in mid spring for lots of summer colour.
For cascades of colour in hanging baskets – that bees adore, try portulacas, spreading petunias and alyssum.
