Things to do in the garden in May.......

...should you be so inclined:

1. For goodness sake don't work too hard...your garden will always look lovely as long as you are having a lovely time IN it.

2. Mow the lawn (yawn)

2. Plant summer-flowering bulbs, corms and tubers (dahlias, acidanthera, gladioli...the list is endless)

3. Become a regular hoe-er and nuke little weedlings before they take hold.  Buy yourself a nice sexy hand-hoe and a cushion so you can get properly intimate with them

4. Sow salad leaves in any spare patches of ground or in pots

All good things, always,
