Patrick Hunt will present a talk on what to be doing in the garden this April. This month we will look at which vegetables can be directly sown into the ground such as pea and potatoes and which can be propagated in pots and seed trays such as squash, courgette, turnip spinach and chards for planting out later. We will look at how to prepare an area and sow an annual wildflower mix to benefit bees and butterflys and discuss the benefits of having some weeds and untidy areas in the garden.
