This is when the garden really comes alive, but while day-time temperatures can dramatically shoot up, beware sudden, crippling frosts. Also, keep seedlings ticking over on windowsills or in greenhouses, shading them on days when the sun is too fierce.
Weeding. One of the best reasons for doing the weeding yourself, and not hiring someone else, is that you will quickly start to know the difference between weeds and seedlings of plants that you want to keep. If the latter are growing in the wrong place, pot them up and grow them on for planting in the border later.
Spring is one of the busiest and most exciting seasons in the garden. After months of inactivity, with rain, snow and cold temperatures,spring growth suddenly accelerates. The major new colour is lime green as the lawn puts on new growth, and the shrubs and trees explode in thousands of buds. Daffodils emerge, then tulips that can be as subtle or extrovert as you like, followed by the exotically beautiful magnolias, and rhododendrons that can be as high as a house. Getting the garden off to a smart start could not be simpler.
Large-scale mixed planting. With planning, you can create superb floral displays. If you have a spare patch of garden, or a long stretch of path, try creating a fantastic show of spring colours. Plant a row of lime trees down the centre, add decorative large pots and urns, and then begin underplanting the limes with hundreds of bulbs and perennials in a bright jamboree of red, white, blue and yellow.
