In May, the chance of frost has all but gone, meaning you can really get your teeth into getting the garden looking great. The soil temperature has begun to rise, which means plant and grass growth increases too.
Whatever treatment that you’re using, you should concentrate on using it around the bases of hedges and shrubs. The pesky creatures that are slugs and snails often live in the cover of larger plants – if you put a good circle of deterrent around these, you’ll be fine.
If you have a pond, you may need to scoop out any algae and/or blanket weed. You should leave the blanket weed overnight on the side of the pond so any pond creatures can find their way back in! Frogs and toads are great to have in the garden, and love to chomp on nuisance pests that might like the taste of your plants and vegetables.
