  • Pinch out sideshoots on tomatoes.
  • Harvest lettuce, radish, other salads and early potatoes.
  • Position summer hanging baskets and containers.
  • Plant out summer bedding.
  • Stake tall or floppy plants.
  • Prune many spring-flowering shrubs.
  • Shade greenhouses to keep them cool and prevent scorch.
  • Give your bedding plants and hanging baskets a liquid feed once a week for continuing blooms.
  • Cut back faded perennial plants to keep borders tidy.
  • Cut back hardy geraniums and delphiniums after the first flush of flowers to encourage new growth and further blooms.
  • Deadhead bedding plants and perennial plants to stop them self-seeding and to encourage further flowering.
  • Deadhead your roses to keep them looking tidy. Leave the flowers in place if your rose produces attractive hips (seed pods).
