Use T-shirt hack to ‘protect’ plants and what to plant now – your weekend gardening jobs


“They’re hungry plants so it’s a good idea to put them in a bed or container that’s enriched with well-rotted manure. 

“Of course give them something to grow up against such as a wigwam of canes.”

Plants such as daffodils and crocuses can also be planted out in the garden this weekend.

Louise explained: “If you’ve containers of daffodils or crocuses which have finished flowering, and you now want to free up the pots for something else, rather than throw away the spent bulbs, why not plant them out in your garden. 

“Take care to keep the bulbs’ roots and leaves intact when you do this, and after planting them out, water them, perhaps with a liquid feed, so that the leaves feed the bulb.”
