Plant strawberry plants
Buying plants rather than runners will give you a better chance of strawberries this year.

Stop forcing rhubarb
Towards the end of the month, remove forcing pots from rhubarb. Don’t leave the pots on too long or you’ll exhaust the plants.

Buy blueberry bushes
Blueberries are very easy to grow and are a delicious snacking fruit. Grow varieties which ripen at different times to give you berries throughout the summer.

Mulch around fruit trees and bushes
Spread compost or manure around the base of fruit trees and bushes. This helps suppress weeds as well as retaining moisture.
