Searching for garden designer in Oxford?
T.S. Eliot called April ‘the cruellest month’, but that certainly isn’t the case for gardeners. It’s been said that gardeners are born optimists: they always believe next year their gardens will do better.
April is the time when your garden begins to look green and vibrant again. If you have kept perennial foliage overwinter for wildlife now is the time to start tidying. Early-flowering shrubs should be pruned back after flowering and keep on top of the weeds with regular weeding and deadheading to keep your garden trim.
It’s the time for planting summer bulbs and corms such as dahlias, cannas and gladioli. Try the Gladioli deep purple ‘Astarte’ and ‘Green Star’ and or Dahlia’s you can buy plug plants from Pheasant Acre Plants seen at Chelsea last year, providing you with a succession of flowers throughout the season.
If you’d like to jazz up your garden now is also an excellent time to have landscaping done, and put plants into the ground. Since the weather is still wet and mild, it gives them time to establish themselves.
