Living: THE GARDEN - JOBS FOR THE WEEK.

1Bedding out should be well underway except for more tender subjects, such as begonias and impatiens, which you should plant last.

2Begin planting out pot-grown runner beans but protect with fleece or newspaper if cold nights are forecast. 3Make further sowings of most vegetables.

Thin earlier sowings and net brassicas against pigeons.

4Persistent weeds such as bindweed and ground elder can be spot-treated with a selective weedkiller. 5Luxuriant growth on climbers and herbaceous plants should be tied in at the earliest opportunity.

6Watch out for suckers on roses. These should be pulled off the root, rather than cut.

7Lift, divide and re-plant early-flowering hardy primulas.

8Cut the tops from lupins or delphiniums that have finished flowering to prevent them seeding.

9Never allow sweet peas to dry out and keep young shoots well tied in.

10 Look in growing points and under leaves on plants for greenfly or whitefly - and spray at the earliest opportunity.
