April is one of the busiest months of the year in the garden. There are seeds to be sown, lawns to be mowed, shrubs to be pruned, vegetable to plant and plants to be fed.

Things to do in April:

  • Cut your grass. Your lawn will require mowing from now on. Keep the blades of your lawnmower high for the first few cuts.
  • Feed your lawn with a good lawn feed, weed and moss killer.
  • Re-seed any bald patches in your lawn.
  • Pot up young seedlings.
  • Sow your vegetable garden if you haven’t already done so.
