Bring on Spring!
We’re ready for Spring to get serious and bring us some warmer, consistent weather that will finally allow us be outdoors spending time in our gardens. We’ve had enough of ‘winter, spring, winter, spring’ … just bring on Spring!

START NOW!  … Summer flowering bulbs are a great way to add a splash of colour to any corner, border or container. While summer bulbs are best planted outside as soon as all threat of frost has passed, they can be started now in pots in a sunny window. READ MORE on planting spring bulbs for brilliant summer displays!

THINGS TO DO IN APRIL! 
  • When the soil is no longer soggy, dethatch your lawn. A good raking removes the dead grass and other debris that can prevent water and nutrients from seeping down to the roots.
  • If your lawn is patchy, this is an excellent time to re-seed or overseed your lawn for healthy new growth. Be sure to loosen the top layer of soil with a rake and mix a thin layer of compost before you seed. More tips for seeding.
  • Plant seed potatoes, onion sets and garlic cloves. Read our tips for growing.
  • Dig up and divide overgrown perennials. Remember to use transplant fertilizer once new growth appears to encourage the plant to push out new roots. Read our blog on how to avoid transplant shock.
  • Plant cool season vegetables such as parsley, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, radish and spinach. These hardy vegetables will tolerate hard frosts.
Add a pop of early colour to your garden or containers with pansies and violas!
