Bulbs to plant in May

With the summer nearly upon us, if you haven’t finished planting your summer flowering bulbs such as dahlia’s and gladioli, this is really the last opportunity you’ll have.

Check that your bulbs are healthy and throw away any that are rotting or soft to the touch.

 Sow half-hardy annuals

There’s still time to sow hardy annual seeds such as sunflowers directly where you want them to flower. Prepare the ground by removing all the weeds in the area so that the young seedlings don’t have to compete against the weeds.
