Lawn Calendar – May

Lawn Calendar

Regular mowing once a week is normal at this time of year but remember to leave the height of the cut at least 1 inch or more. Varying the direction of the cut helps the lawn to grow evenly.

If the lawn is dry don’t start to water it too much as this can be more harmful than drought. Try to use rainwater collected in a water butt as it contains important minerals and nutrients. Always water in the evening as it allows the water to penetrate the surface before it evaporates in the sun.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
