Ten things you can do in the garden in May in the UK

Tuesday, May 7th, 2024

Ten things you can do in the garden in May in the UK:

1. **Plant Summer Flowers:** May is the perfect time to plant summer-flowering bulbs and annuals like dahlias, geraniums, and petunias to add vibrant colors to your garden. Shop at Thompson and Morgan NOW – up to 70% off 

2. **Prune Spring Bloomers:** Trim back spring-flowering shrubs and bushes once they’ve finished blooming to encourage healthy growth for next year.

3. **Sow Vegetables:** Start sowing vegetables directly into the soil or in containers, including tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and beans for a bountiful harvest later in the season.

4. **Weed Control:** Stay on top of weeds by regularly pulling them out before they have a chance to take over your garden beds.

5. **Feed and Mulch:** Apply a balanced fertilizer to your plants and top them off with a layer of mulch to conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and provide nutrients as they grow.

6. **Set Up Supports:** Install supports like stakes, trellises, and cages for climbing plants such as tomatoes, peas, and beans to help them grow upwards and save space.

7. **Attract Pollinators:** Plant nectar-rich flowers like lavender, cosmos, and marigolds to attract bees, butterflies, and other beneficial pollinators to your garden.

8. **Monitor Watering:** With warmer weather arriving, keep an eye on soil moisture levels and water your plants as needed, ensuring they receive adequate hydration without being overwatered.

9. **Start a Compost Pile:** Begin a compost pile or turn your existing one regularly to create nutrient-rich compost for your garden beds and potted plants.

10. **Plan for Summer:** Take some time to plan and prepare your garden for the upcoming summer months, considering any changes or additions you’d like to make to enhance its beauty and functionality.

Sungold tomato seeds

An outstanding cordon cherry tomato for glasshouse or outdoor culture. Tomato ‘Sungold’ has an exceptionally high sugar content, which easily rivals ‘Gardeners Delight’, making its attractive, golden-orange fruit irresistibly sweet and juicy. The high yields of delicious thin-skinned fruit (each approximately 13g) are ideal for salads or as a tasty snack. This popular variety also has good resistance to tobacco mosaic virus and fusarium wilt. A hardy nature ensures this vigorous performer will crop well into winter in a cool greenhouse. Height: 200cm (79″). Spread: 50cm (20″).

These are my favourite cherry tomatoes to grow. They ripen quickly and produce huge amounts of fruit, You need to pick regularly though else they’ll over ripen and split – but they are so delicious you’ll be happy to put the time in every day to collect the ripe ones!

Utterly lovely fresh and can be roasted too for sauces.

Incredibloom – how to get incredible flowers

Monday, June 19th, 2017

incredibloom® – 

Incredibloom® is a ground-breaking innovation in premium fertilisers. It guarantees that your plants will be fed the correct nutrients as and when they need them. The controlled slow release sets new standards in fertiliser quality thanks to its continuous delivery of nitrogen, phosphates and potash throughout the entire growing season of the plant. It acts fast because the controlled release of the nitrogen, the soil temperature and the moisture levels that govern the release of the nitrogen, all match the plant’s requirements. The unique double nitrogen technology means that there’s no waste, no burning and the fertiliser gives an immediate and long-term effect. The results of our trials really have demonstrated the benefits of using the right fertiliser and with such dramatic results, it’s a false economy not to add incredibloom® to your order. Remember, incredibloom® is a complete plant fertiliser with an excellent balance of NPK and trace elements. One easy application means that there’s no messing around with liquid feeds and no wastage as the plant only uses what it requires.
