Months of wet weather have caused moss to become a problem in many lawns so action is needed. Chemical moss killer can be used to treat existing moss you will then have to rake this out as you see it die.

It’s also time to start hoeing flowerbeds and lawns and start spot treating them.

Look out for slugs and snails. Scatter slug pellets around the plants that are most at risk.
