Martin Finney joined us to discuss gardening for this month. Dalias need to be held back until late May. in general, it is advisable to wait until at least late May to plant most things. It is advisable to keep a look out for white fly on Tomatoes or peppers or any such plant. Feed your lawn and try to mow once a week. If you have Vine Weavle you can treat it, but you should stick to the same treatment and not swap over. If you do worry over planbts and are not sure what is happening with them, you can take them into a garden centre and ask for advice.
