• Tie in new shoots of blackberries and cane fruits to support wires
  • Sow sweetcornin deep pots, raising strong young plants to transplant into the garden in June
  • Pinch off strawberry runners as soon as they develop, to stop them competing with developing fruit for nutrients
  • Earth up soil around emerging potato shoots, which encourages higher yields
  • Sow seedsof the following crops outside this week: radish, spring onions, coriander, parsley and chives.
  • Runner beans make one of the easiest and most rewarding summer crops. Planted now they’ll romp away in the warm soil and, with plenty of moisture at the roots, they’ll quickly twine up their support to produce masses of succulent pods that taste much better than any out-of-season beans in a supermarket.
