Spring is in the air! With long sunny days ahead of us, there is plenty to do in the garden in April. While some of your indoor-sown seeds might be well into growth, this is also the time to start sowing some of the seeds outdoors. Just watch out for those inevitable April showers and last bits of frost!

You can also plant out onion and shallot sets you might have started off already or garlic plants. Onion sets and garlic cloves can be planted directly into the soil now. The first half of the month is also ideal to plant second early potatoes, while maincrop potatoes can be planted later in the month. You can also transplant broad beans grown in pots.

Tomato seeds can be sown indoors, ready to be planted out in the following month. Aubergine seeds can also be sown under cover for now for growing in the greenhouse or transplanting outdoors later. Celery, basil seeds, marrow, pumpkin, squash, and courgettes, can also be sown under cover, while perennial herbs such as rosemary, sage, and thyme can also be planted indoors.

Check if you need to increase the water given to houseplants. Potted fruit trees, like currants, fig, and citrus, can also be planted. Select a few vibrant flowers to add a touch of colour to your garden this Spring.

With plenty to do, this month is also #PeatFreeApril, where organisations, companies, gardeners, activists, and other individuals are continuing to campaign for the end of the sale of peat-based compost. Peatlands are important for the world’s climate as they store carbon dioxide, and important sources of food, water, and biodiversity. Yet, peatlands have been damaged by drainage, over-grazing, and burning, with millions of cubic metres of peat dug out every year in the UK.
