Lawn Calendar

dsc00538Warmer temperatures at this time of year will encourage grass growth so you may still need to mow your lawn but not as often.

Be flexible about when you mow the  lawn as if it is very dry, the grass will need to be interfered with. Heavy rainfall often comes all at once now which can mean the grass puts on a sudden growth spurt  – watch for this and only cut it once the grass is dry.

This is a good month to aerate the lawn by using a garden fork and scarify it with a rake. If you must use fertiliser make sure it is organic and will not harm the envitonement.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
