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 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.
