Then pick up tips at a tulip festival on how to deter squirrels and invest in a weeder
Plant this Dwarf crab apples are brilliant trees for smaller gardens as they stay compact: right now they are festooned with pink or white blossom, a valuable early source of pollen for insects. The fruit that follows will be welcomed by the birds even if you don’t turn it into jelly.
Visit this If squirrels are destroying your tulips, take a trip to Hever Castle in Kent, where its tulip festival is in full swing this weekend. Examine its trial of 10 methods for deterring squirrels from munching bulbs, and follow a self-guided trail of 21,000 tulips around the grounds.
Weed this Getting on top of annual weeds such as hairy bittercress and speedwell can be tedious. The Nunki weeder has a curved blade that allows for precision work around plants: it comes with a lifetime guarantee so at £29 it’s a worthwhile investment.
