Garden Activities for April
April is a great "get things done in the the garden" month:
If your perennials have stopped flowering, remove dry stems and yellow leaves. The next cool day you have (preferably after rain) divide and replant.
Pay some attention to your lawn - sow seeds and fill in bare patches before winter hibernation.
Put fallen leaves in your compost bin (don't forget to leave some under the trees for natural mulch)
Start planning your winter fruit tree planting.
Fertilise your mature fruit trees (don't forget to water them well while you are doing it!)
Start your winter vegetables. We recommend using Gardenate to plan your planting (link below).
This is your last chance to plant for spring!
