With the fourth month of the year just a couple of weeks away, the summer preparations begin to enter their final stages, ahead of the long awaited warm weather. April provides a different challenge to the first three months of the year, with sunshine sporadic throughout the infamous April showers.
With the warmer weather that we are lucky enough to see during the month of April, it often results in a rise of room temperature within the home. Whilst many are somewhat grateful for this following the previous months of cold weather, there can be negative consequences from this temperature increase. When looking to protect plants from the cold weather, many choose to pot them, and bring them inside, ensuring that they do not feel the bite of the harsh elements, and die. Many plants are still
As mentioned, many plants are still kept inside when April comes around, and whilst this may come as a surprise to some, there is a method behind it. It is accepted that plants are taken inside for the cold, wintry months, yet what is not often realised, is that the threat of a late frost is always present. The worry of a late frost often causes many individuals to keep their plants inside for an extra couple of weeks, as a means to ensure their garden preparations are not scuppered at the last hurdle.
With the longer periods of sunshine present during April, plants will begin to grow, and therefore to ensure order is maintained within a garden design, tying back bushes to fencing with ties could prove to be an action which you benefit from hugely when summer arrives.
Previously we have mentioned that when the opportunity presents itself, venting your greenhouse could be extremely advantageous. Should you still be regularly using your greenhouse throughout April, then it could be deemed somewhat essential to effectively vent the structure, due to the extreme heat which can develop, as a result of the direct sunlight being magnified.
Perhaps you are yet to address the weeds which have grown in your garden over the last month? With the sunshine motivating many to get outside, there is hardly a better time to deal with the threat of weeds prior to the arrival of summer, when the heat may be used as an excuse as to why they are developing across your garden.
