Spring has officially sprung and with this in mind gardening work has mainly revolved around preparing the garden so it can be enjoyed throughout the spring and summer.
The first cut of the lawn was done on a bright sunny dry morning but we made sure to rake it beforehand. This is because there have been a lot of worm casts littering it, writes the Uckfield News Anonymous Gardener.
If we had mown over them they would have squashed down into a muddy mess. Raking helped to break them down slightly.
Also this month we planted some primulas in the front borders.
Daffodils planted a few months ago are looking glorious. There are long-stemmed ones and a spikey variety too. The fact that the bulbs were all planted fairly close together has paid off by creating a beautiful display.
There are also white and blue/purple hyacinths dotted around the garden which add to the colourful scene.
