Spread a granular organic fertiliser around citrus trees. Allow the rain to wash it in.
Clean the secateurs in readiness for Rose pruning. Take to them with hot soapy water and a scourer or steel wool. Remove the sap stuck on the blade from previous pruning sessions and sharpen the blade with a fine oil stone. Sharp tools make pruning enjoyable.
Remove weeds around small seedlings, they compete for moisture and will ultimately win.
Pour boiling water between pavers to kill weeds quickly and safely.
Apply a weak solution of copper sulphate to slippery paving. Avoid splashing on foliage as it will burn.
Start digging some holes for new plants. A good strategy if you live where the soil is heavy clay or its dry. Dig a bit then allow the hole to fill up with water and then come back to digging the next stage later.
Check potted plants are not waterlogged and are draining freely.
Remove saucers from pots that are in the open, don’t allow the plants to continually sit in water.
