April Jobs


Spring is really here 
in all its beauty. 


It is time to think about the 
season ahead and plan 
what you want to 
achieve this season.

As the leaves start to unfurl, 
we watch the changes 
every day and revel 
in its spendor.


1. Look at any large shrubs
you have and decide if they
need to stay or if they
need to go. 

2. Any shrub or plant you
don't like can be dug up.

3. If it is necessary,
then remove it and later
you can see what
you could put in its place. 

4. Look around your space
and see where there
may be gaps to fill.

5. But take notes always
or you will forget.

This shrub above,
is a buddleia
 which you may know
grows absolutely
anywhere it can.

I started to prune
it on Easter Sunday
and this is as far
as I got. 

I will continue to
cut it down a lot so
that it will grow better 
and have a nicer


6. Observe any flowers
that are coming into flower
and decide if you like them
or you don't.

This is a dainty 'purple
vinca' which is really a
ground cover plant and
very useful.

But as you can see
growing up towards
the light. 

It likes growing up
into the large
rose bush above it.
