We know when Eastertime is coming around when we see the new Spring daffodils begin to bloom. Taking a walk through a local wood or nature reserve will bring other little splashes of colour from yellow and purple crocus flowers, and of course the wild bluebells.
In early 2021 with lockdown restrictions still in place an Easter Sunday church service may not be possible this year, and with the weather bringing more and more sunshine and longer hours in the day, it's time to plan some outdoor activities for the little ones in our family and lives.
Easter Weekend Things To Do In The Garden with the Kids
Once you have finished your Easter egg hunt, maintain the outdoors feel and get the family involved with a few things to prepare for the summer season.
Start a kitchen garden with the kids - If you don't fancy starting the sunflowers from seed, head on over to your local DIY store as their garden centres should stock vegetable, herb pots and salad-leaf starter plants that have been pre-grown by brand experts.
Did you know? It's a tradition to plant potatoes on Good Friday! At this time of year you can also plant shallots (small onions), garlic bulbs and rows of onions as well as asparagus patches.
Have a worm collecting contest whilst weeding. Now is a great time to remove dandelions, docks and other deep-rooted weeds – their grip isn’t as tenacious this early in the season. Be prepared to repel slug invasions and out pellets on your shopping list for later in the year.
Kids love to get dirty - Mulch plants by applying a layer of bark chips or other well-rotted organic matter to feed them, suppress weeds and conserve moisture in summer.
TIP: Sweet peas are a huge natural help to make your vegetable flowering plants thrive, bees completely adore the scent which comes in extremely handy for cross-pollinating your garden and allotment selections. We recommend to plant out the sweet peas next to a trellis support or a triangle of bamboo canes. Remember the summer favourites - secure strawberry plants into patio planters or moss lined hanging baskets for a tasty and aesthetically pleasing crop this summer 2021.
Use liquid feed in your your pots and patio containers to enrich the soil/compost, it's easy to brighten them up with happy yellow primroses (which are very cheap to buy), there's also violas, pots of spring bulbs and hardy spring heathers in all colours. Right around Easter time Summer bedding plants like marigolds, begonia and viola are readily available as baby starter plants, ready to grow in your back yarden.
Chop 'em back - It's time to prune shrubs with a clean, sharp pair of secateurs, fine sandpaper can be used on some blades to remove small spots of surface rust. Of course, opt for a saw for thicker wooden branches.
On colder, wetter Easter weekends , you could always re-pot house plants whilt in the kitchen. Choose the sunniest of your windowsills to double as mini-greenhouses to sow your chosen seeds into pots. In preparation for replanting later in spring remember to label them!
Grass grows greener - Love your lawn a little more by cutting it regularly and trim the edges little and often. April is the known as the best calander month of the year to reseed any grass-devoid bare patches as the sun grows warmer and higher in the sky each day.
Upcycle and Paint Afresh - Revive existing wooden garden furniture or ask around for donations of pallets and make your own. Use a water-based wood colour for barrel tubs and trellis. If your wooden garden furniture suffers with algae and dirt, choose a dry day and use sandpaper, it’s low-cost, effective and an old gardener’s trick.
Is your BBQ under cover? Check the barbecue is free of cobwebs and bird's nests, give it a test drive and fire it up to working order and add cylinder gas or charcoal to your April shopping list.
Easter Sunday at the Garden Centre - Buy and plant hardy trees, shrubs, climbers and perennials. For the front of your home, potted topiary plants are a super accessory – consider a pair of bay trees for either side of your front door which elevates your property with a touch of elegance.
A trellis will create some privacy around your seating area, you can also relocate screening plants or topiary in large garden patio pots. Alternatively, pick a new secluded spot on your property and add a wooden arbour or a garden arch to a family-sized gazebo to retreat to should you need some shade to read later in the year, watching your children pick strawberries and eating some Rumsey's Handmade Chocolate.
