    Now that better temperatures have arrived Paraic reminded listeners this week to get vegetable, fruiting and flowering plants sown while sounding a note of caution about planting out warm weather dependent plants fully just yet. He also emphasised the importance of keeping newly sown plants watered and the benefits of applying a granultated feed at the moment. Garden tasks for the weekend included taking control of weeds and general lawn care. Tips included treating yellow patches in lawns, using a trellis-climber combination to disguise oil tanks and enriching soil with boron when sowing turnips. Listeners questions this week featured planting dwarf nastursiums in hanging baskets, planting out cherry trees, lemon scented geranium to ward off flies and re-potting Calathea Crocata.
