Soil-testing by hand
Sow annual flower seeds now for a pretty display by early summer, but make sure your soil is warm enough first. Hold the back of your hand against the ground, and if it feels chilly, your seeds will shiver too: when it's comfortable to the touch for three consecutive days, you're ready to go.

Plant of the Week: Rhododendrons
It's time for the most spectacular firework display in the gardening calendar, as rhododendrons and azaleas burst into bloom filling the garden with day-glo colours.
These days you don't need a huge garden to enjoy these late-spring superstars: the new 'yak' (yakushimanum) varieties grow happily in the smallest of spaces, even in containers. Buy them in full glorious flower right now from our garden centre: particularly lovely varieties to look out for are 'Sneezy', in bright pink, pure white 'Blewbury', and soft lilac 'Ernest Inman'. None reach more than about 1m tall and enjoy a roomy pot – about 35-45cm – and ericaceous (lime-free) compost.
