Gardening Jobs & Tips from Ken Turner

Now we have passed the middle of May we should be frost free so you can start to plant out summer bedding. If you are going to do this most of the plants will be in some form of container so make sure the root ball is really moist before planting and then water in well.
If you are planting into patio pots and the compost has been there for a few years try to replace the top few inches with fresh compost and add a little fetiliser like fish, blood and bone.

When planting hanging baskets aim to put a small bottle with the base cut out into the basket to enable easier watering. Avoid watering in the heat of the day.

Variegated shrubs like Elaeagnus pungens maculata or Euonymus fortunei Emerald Gaiety have a tendancy to revert back to green so keep an eye open for all green shoots and cut them out otherwise in time the plant will become completely green. Also remove suckers growing from the base of grafted plants like roses and cherries before they take over the variety.
