We love selling houses at this time of year, the gardens look beautiful, full of greenery and colour. Buyers and prospective tenants are drawn to the outside space so it is important to make sure your garden is in top condition as it can really make or break a sale.
As usual the RHS are full of useful tips to help. Here are their top 10 jobs for May:
1 Watch out for late frosts. Protect tender plants
2 Earth up potatoes, and promptly plant any still remaining
3 Plant out summer bedding at the end of the month (except in cold areas)
4 Water early and late to get the most out of your water, recycle water when possible
5 Regularly hoe off weeds
6 Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm days
7 Mow lawns weekly
8 Check for nesting birds before clipping hedges
9 Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of daffodils and other spring-flowering bulbs
10 Watch out for viburnum beetle and lily beetle grubs
