  3. Plant out summer bedding at the end of the month (except in cold areas)
  4. Water early and late to get the most out of your water, recycle water when possible
  5. Regularly hoe off weeds
  6. Open greenhouse vents and doors on warm days
  7. Mow lawns weekly
  8. Check for nesting birds before clipping hedges
  9. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of daffodils and other spring-flowering bulbs
