Get Your Garden Blooming: Easter Weekend To-Do List From A Pro Gardener

"Gardening Expert Shares Tips on Easter Weekend Garden Makeover for a Blooming Summer"

As the sun starts to make its appearance, many people are looking to spruce up their gardens. With Easter weekend just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get your garden ready for summer. Gardening expert, Lucy Rhead from Gtech, has revealed the essential jobs you need to do to ensure your garden blooms this summer.

Firstly, it’s time to start pruning your garden of weeds. Rhead suggests removing any weeds from your flowerbeds and underneath hedges to make way for new growth. This will involve raking up any dead leaves and branches that may have gathered during the winter months.

It’s also the best time to start mowing your lawn again. Rhead recommends adding some grass feed to ensure it looks lush for summer. If you have daffodils in your lawn, wait until they are brown and dead before mowing. Otherwise, they will fail to spring up again next year.

Watering your grass and plants in the morning is also recommended at this time of year. If you have a green thumb, now is the best time to start planting vegetables. Rhead suggests planting beetroots, leeks, radishes, parsnips, broccoli, and cauliflower, which can all be planted directly into the soil. She advises planting them in a straight row to ensure they have plenty of room to grow.

Now that the risk of frost and extreme weather has reduced, it’s also a good time to plant new flowers in the garden. Rhead suggests picking a day with little wind to ensure the seeds do not end up in unwanted areas of your garden. She also advises remaining vigilant and protecting any vulnerable plants if the weather takes a turn for the worst.

If you have any flowers that have outgrown their pots, now is the perfect time to replant them. With Easter weekend providing an extra day off work, it’s the perfect opportunity to get your garden in shape.

In conclusion, by following these simple steps, you can ensure your garden is ready for summer. With a little bit of hard work, you can have a beautiful garden that blooms throughout the season.
