It’s been a long, wet winter, so now is the time to help your lawn get set for spring by feeding and weeding and repairing worn patches.
Click here to find out how to Look after your lawn in spring.
Now is the time to look after raspberry canes – this is your last chance to prune established autumn-fruiting raspberries. You should also be pruning back newly planted raspberries – cut them back to 30cm (12in) if you have not already done no. Summer fruiting raspberries meanwhile, need to be tipped back to 15cm (6in) above their top support wire.
