May On The Plot

May marks the end of spring and the start of summer and some welcome sunshine. It is important to remember that despite the warmer weather it is still possible for the last of the frosts to hit. It is time to start hardening off the plants ready to be moved to the allotment. The warmer weather will prompt rapid growth in weeds so best to keep an eye on freshly turned soil for any signs of weed growth. May is the perfect month to get on top of any maintenance jobs before the busy time of planting out takes grip.
