Potting About in May

Although a lot of our treasured warm weather flowers will begin their long winter rest now this is no time for the gardener to sleep. Every lovely day counts now so try to complete all those jobs you didn’t get done earlier while the weather is still good.

This is the last month to safely plant out most spring bulbs (minor bulbs being the only exception) so hurry! And watch for bulb sales. Best buys will be minor bulbs like anemone, ranunculus, sparaxis, tritonia, freesia, daffodil (if they still look healthy and the bulbs are not soft) and late flowering tulip.

Avoid buying the lovely early flowering rock, cottage, and early Darwin’s this late unless you are a true professional grower or have an unusually cold site. There just isn’t enough time for them to develop properly prior to flowering and many will “blast” (grow leaves but flower buds will wither and die).
