May in the Garden with Glendoick

1st November 2015

Everything is starting to grow now: buds swelling, blossom opening, leaves unfurling. You might need some fleece to protect your early flowers on frosty nights in inland gardens. Try to take fleece off again before it gets wet as heavy wet fleece can do more damage than not having it.

May is the month to plant:

Raymond Evison Clematis

Normally £16.99, for a limited period only £14.99

The world's greatest Clematis breeder Raymond Evison is based in Guernsey. Each year new varieties are launched at Chelsea and we have lots of his amazing varieties in stock right now, about to burst into flower.   

 

 

Perennials and Alpines

huge range in now. coming into flower Aquilegia (columbine), Scabious, Iberis, Aubretia, Trillium, and lots more

Roses  

full range in now.  Climbers, David Austin, Shrub.   Patio Roses will be in later on, at the end of May.

Herbs 

April and May are the months to plant herbs. Plant out the hardy ones: thyme, mint etc first and leave the more tender herbs such as basil till early June. 

Vegetable Plants 

You’ll find our full range of vegetable plants coming in each week. Beans hate cold and cold winds so protect them with fleece on cold nights and with beans, pot a few up and keep them indoors as an insurance in case the weather turns cold.

Lawn

Feed and Weed: this is the time of year to feed your lawn. If there is a lot of moss or weeds, use Evergreen Complete which combines feed, weedkiller and mosskiller.

Sowing Grass Seed

Best time: April-May/ late August & September when soil is warming up but its not too hot and dry.

  • The better the preparation, the better the results.

  • Eliminate weeds with weedkiller, or hand weed.

  • Dig or rotovate the site to a depth of 20-25cm (8-10in).

  • Ensure surface is level:, tread the area several times in different directions and then rake several times also in different directions. (not in wet weather)

  • Apply & rake in 70g per sq m (2oz per sq yd) of general-purpose fertiliser.

  • Sow the grass seed evenly according to instructions on the box & lightly rake over to cover seeds with soil.

  • If weather is dry, water gently. Keep birds off.

  • Avoid walking on it for 3-4 weeks

  • Dont cut grass short till well established. 

Bedding Plants for borders, containers and hanging baskets 

Ideally, bedding plants should be planted in May.  But be aware that cold nights and east winds can damage them, so you may need to fleece them in severe weather.  Our bedding plants are grown right here in the Carse of Gowrie: local plants, at the perfect time to plant them.  £3.49 per pack, 4 for £12

For hanging baskets, line your basket well and add a fertilizer-rich compost.  Use trailing plants for the sides of your basket. Water well and keep them fed so they flower all summer. You can plant with slow release fertiliser which feeds all summer long.
