Lodsworth  &  District  Garden  Club

 is for everyone interested in plants and gardening!


You are very welcome to join us no matter what type of garden

you have, be it large or small, established or new, a conservatory,

an allotment, a windowbox or pot plants on the patio.



   



As bulbs fade and herbaceous borders grow in leaps and bounds, it is now clear that summer is approaching. Sowing and planting out bedding can begin, depending on regional weather variations, and you can take softwood cuttings. It's also time to get back into the lawn mowing regime, as the lawn will be loving the warmer temperatures this month brings


   1 Watch out for late frosts. Protect tender plants.

   2 Earth up potatoes, and promptly plant any still remaining

   3 Plant out summer bedding at the end of the month

   4 Water early and late, recycle water when possible

   5 Regularly hoe off weeds

   6 Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm days

   7 Mow lawns weekly

   8 Check for nesting birds before clipping hedges

   9 Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of daffodils and other spring-flowering bulbs

  10 Watch out for viburnum beetle and lily beetle grubs
