Increase your stock of shrubs
Take softwood cuttings of deciduous shrubs, including Forsythia, Fuchsia, Hydrangea macrophylla, Philadelphus and Spiraea – choose non-flowering stems.
Keep potato haulms covered
Cover emerging shoots of potatoes with soil. If the tubers are exposed to light, they turn green because of an increase in chlorophyll, which makes them have a high level of glycoalkaloids toxins.
Keep nipping off the dead flower heads of late-flowering daffodils and let the foliage die down naturally.
Discard old bedding tulips
When old tulips have finished flowering, discard the bulbs, ready to plant up containers with summer bedding.
After flowering, dig up and divide Primulas.
