NEWS   May 2018

May is an exciting and busy time in the garden. For glamorous garden blooms, instant architecture and long lasting cut flowers you can’t beat Sunflowers. They are easy to grow and super productive. For children I recommend Sunflower Teddy Bear.

There are lots of lovely plants already in bloom in May and if you see some you love right now it’s likely that they are Hardy Biennials. They can be sown outdoors at the end of the month when the soil has warmed up and they are great for combining with spring bulbs.

At last things are warming up in the garden.  If you’ve been holding off from sowing seeds because of the cold and wet weather then this is the perfect time to get started. Most hardy annual flowers take a few weeks to grow into young plants sturdy enough for planting outside. If you sow your seeds indoors now your young plants will be ready to plant out towards the end of May. That’s the perfect time for planting outdoors… and for sowing seeds outdoors too when the soil has warmed up. There are so many beautiful Flowers to Grow in May that are excellent for wildlife and look great in your garden and many of them are brilliant for cut flowers too.

It’s brilliant to see Monty and the team back on TV on Gardeners World. If you missed Fridays episode you can catch it on the BBC i Player. A couple of weeks ago he was in the potting shed sowing climbers such as Cobaea scandens and suggested sowing the seed sideways on for best results. Monty showed viewers Cobaea Purple and there is a beautiful White Cobaea too. The great thing about Cobaea is that they go on and on flowering in the garden until mid autumn. If you’re growing flowers for cutting and have a poly tunnel you can keep them going in there for even longer!
