Gardening: Potting shed: jobs to do this weekend.
lPosition scented spring bulbs and any shrubs like hyacinths and lily-of-the-valley in pots near doors, windows and pathways to make the most of their wonderful smell. lMake the most of alpines and plant them in a mix of gritty compost in a trough.
lGet the mower out as there's no putting it off any longer it's time to start cutting the grass. A well cared for lawn with the edges trimmed will really enhance the rest of your garden and add a pleasant view from your home. l Garden centres will have bedding plants for sale now, but only buy them if you have a frost-free greenhouse to put them in.
