May the first brings lots of traditions and this week Paraic reminded listeners of an old celtic tradition of leaving yellow flowers at neighbours houses as a symbol of good fortune for the season ahead. Cooler nighttime temperatures persist resulting in continuing scorching on younger plants, so again Paraic gives a timely reminder of the need to protect and maintain softer plants indoors for another week or so. There's some colour now available in hardier plants such as calceolaria and nemesia – both feature in some detail on the programme. There's also information on feeding plants right now, Paraic recommends feeding all plants at this time of year as growth firmly starts to take hold. There's advice on how to get rid of briars, bee friendly greenfly treatment and how to prevent hares from damaging hornbeam hedging. Listeners questions include recommendations for blight resistant seed potatoes, gogi berry plants not fruiting, how to prevent bluebells spreading, treatment for damaged camelias, propogating cherry blossoms, tips for sowing root crops in garden soil, moving plants in general and transplanting rhodedendron from pots into the ground.
