April is a kind month, its warmth encouraging shoots and seedlings to burst into new growth at last. There are daffodils and the first tulips to enjoy, as well as spring perennials and the glory of spring blossom.
The RHS Feel Good Garden is designed by leading landscaper Matt Keightley for this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. It will be a modern, stylish space designed to provide a therapeutic space focussing on health and wellbeing.
Fruit trees and bushes are big, generous plants that need plenty of goodness in the soil to produce their bumper crops each year. You can do your bit to boost nutrient levels by scattering slow-release fertiliser in spring.
