Seven tasks to get your garden ready for spring in one afternoon…

1 Clean and sharpen garden tools – ten minutes. You should clean your gardening tools regularly to make them last longer.

2 Spot clean your garden for debris – 20 minutes. Starting a large yard cleanup can be an over-the-top job, but doing a little basic cleanup can transform your whole yard.

3 Trim your plants – one hour. There is no better time than the present to carry out the annual pruning.

4 Prepare your lawn for the first cut – 30 minutes. The first cut of the year doesn’t come until the first dry spell in March, but that doesn’t mean you can’t show your lawn some love before you mow it.

5 Weeding and mulching – 1.5 hours. It’s time to tackle the weeds that have made their way into your soil.

6 Clean and treat garden furniture – One hour. Any garden furniture should have been covered or put away over the winter – but if not, now is the time to see if you can get it back in time for the warmer months.

7 Add plant supports – 30 minutes. Put your plant supports in place before the first shoots start to appear.
