GARDENING BY JANET HEATH

Spring is here

After a long cold winter we can welcome a variety of trees, shrubs and perennials that flower in May.

Laburnum x watereri is a smallish tree (4 to 8 metres tall) with long racemes of bright yellow flowers in late spring. Note that all parts of the tree are poisonous including the seeds so not one to plant where small children or animals are around. However the flowers are stunning and if you had time to train over an arch you could have a mini Laburnum tunnel similar to the famous one at Bodnant gardens. Clematis Montana is a climber, very vigorous and can drape itself over 4 fence panels! It is covered in pink or white flowers which are slightly scented and will flower in sun or shade. Best in a moisture retentive soil and if it gets too large, take the shears to it immediately after flowering. Shrubs flowering in May include Spirea Goldflame or Golden Princess. These low growing mounded shrubs are good in sun or partial shade and any soil. The new foliage has orange or yellow leaves in early spring and bright pink flowers in summer. Perennials include the large flowered Paeonies in flower in May. They take time to clump up but look stunning. Will grow in sun or part shade and best in moisture retentive soils. Put plant supports around the foliage to keep it from falling over. On a smaller scale, the Silene vulgaris or Bladder Campion is perfect for the edge of a rockery or raised bed in sun. You can see it flowering on cliff paths in this country but it can do well in gardens too. Jobs to be doing in the garden in May include doing the Chelsea Chop! Perennials that flower later in the season such as Heleniums or Astrantias can be cut back to delay flowering. If you have 2 plants cut one back and leave the other to extend the season. Put straw around Strawberries to protect the fruit. Keep your potatoes earthed up to improve yields and continue to plant succession of salad seeds like lettuce and radishes for a continuous supply. If you would like to visit gardens look out for gardens open under the National Gardens Scheme where all proceeds go to charities including Marie Cure Cancer Care and Macmillan Cancer Support. Framley in Neston is open on 7th May with lovely mature woodland underplanted for spring, paths around the 5 acre garden will take you to a sunken garden and an intriguing pond in the woodland. Tirley Garth near Tarporley is open on the afternoon of 13th and 20th May. This Arts and Crafts garden has 20 acres to explore, including thousands of Rhododendrons and Azaleas out in May.

Rory blasts into the final Rory Jones made it through to the national finals of the Big Bang event for young scientists and engineers. Rory was announced as one of the winners of the regional heats at The Big Bang Fair North West with his project ‘Chemical Rockets’. As part of the project, Rory created a series of rockets powered by chemical reactions. He has since showcased and demonstrated his rockets launching to visitors during the school’s open evening in September and has been hard at work developing the project further ready for the national finals. Over the three days Rory competed for top prizes, including the coveted title of UK Young Engineer and GSK UK Young Scientist of the Year and was shortlisted for the Competitors Choice Award. He said: “The best part of the event was when I saw people’s faces light up as I explained to them about my project. It was amazing to be around people so interested in Science where I could be with people who were happy to talk to me about all things Science.”

Hayley’s health and fitness

I just can't get MOTIVATED! We all know that first session in gym, that first fitness class or that first run especially after a long time being away is always the hardest! So, what can you do to ensure you stop making excuses and start making those positive changes. My first bit of advice would be to set a realistic goal! No use saying I’ll run a marathon in 2 months when you haven’t moved for years, nor is setting a target of 3 stone weight loss when your cupboard is full of cakes and biscuits. Start off with baby steps, so for example, you might start with ‘this week my target is to cut out crisps and cakes’ once this target is achieved add on another small goal. ‘ This week Ill increase my water intake etc’ With weight loss it’s so important that you do BOTH exercise and diet together. You will get smaller just dieting but when you’re left with saggy skin and you’re still out of breath getting up the stairs what’s the point! Exercise has a huge impact to all aspects in day to day life, whether it’s your mental state, reducing your risk of high blood pressure, improving your flexibility the list is endless! So, there is no time like the present to start. Exercise classes on your own can be daunting but find something you’ll enjoy and use this as a tool to meet new people, get stuck in and give it your all. In group exercise using others as a tool to ensure you keep going, if group exercise isn’t for you try doing your own workouts at home or getting a personal trainer. Dieting is the part of getting fit most find the hardest, sticking to healthy foods especially at the weekends can be tricky! I believe it’s not about cutting everything out just to have everything in moderation. Carbohydrates

are always labelled as the baddie of the food groups yet eaten properly can be a good tool. It’s the refined carbs that you have to watch, cakes, crisps, sugary snacks are the bad foods. Eating the healthy carbs such as vegetables, fruits and whole grain cereals etc are a perfect way of getting nutrients in and getting a balanced diet. Avoid diets that are all protein, or all liquids they can have adverse effects on your body. A diet however high in protein is what I advise all my clients to eat. A typical day would be eggs and 1 small slice of granary bread for breakfast, handful of almonds for a snack, dinner chicken salad, followed by a Greek yoghurt, afternoon snack a small piece of fruit, evening meal pork/ chicken stir fry. Get yourself a food and exercise diary note all the activity you do throughout the day and use this as a guide of where you can improve. Write down your monthly targets and keep track of good and bad days. Seeing what you actually consume is a great way of monitoring your calorie intake.

Look up....

and use all the space in your home We would all like more space in our homes and with houses in the UK getting smaller, space is at a premium. But what if there was an affordable way to create more space in our homes? A simple solution for all those people fed up of living among clutter and one that doesn’t require planning permission or any major structural building work. For most, the loft is a dark and dingy place visited seasonally; once to dig out the Christmas decorations and then again to bring down the holiday suitcases. A precarious scramble across dusty beams, torch in hand; grabbing what’s needed then clambering back past boxes filled with long-forgotten belongings. But that dark and dingy place is worth thousands. In fact, it takes up a third of

the floor space in an average home. So shouldn’t you be making the most of it? And that’s where More Than Loft Ladders (MTLL) comes in. Founded in Bolton over five years ago, MTLL specialises in generating space by making the loft easily accessible. And that’s all it does. It’s not a generic building company, and it’s not jack-of-all-trades. MTLL only installs loft hatches, ladders, boarding, lighting and insulation. It’s what the company does all day, every day, using qualified local installers who are reliable, tidy and efficient. The latest MTLL franchisee to open covers Crewe and Chester and is run by skilled tradesman, Adam Shepherd...“Our average job is about

Here’s a great way to make more storage space...

£290 and only takes a few hours to complete,” says Adam. “And for that, customers get a modern two section aluminium ladder 50sq ft of boarding and a light to make the space safe and secure.” The price customers are quoted is the price they will pay, with no additional call out or credit card charges. “More Than Loft Ladders is already a trusted name in the north west with over 2,500 successful installations, and I really wanted to bring it here to Cheshire...It’s such a great and cost effective way for people to gain the extra space they need,” added Adam. For a free survey and quotation with no obligation, contact More Than Loft Ladders now!

Install a loft ladder and make more use of your loft!

Loft ladder, Light & Switch plus 50 sqft of flooring from as little as £277+VAT which includes FREE fitting in less than a day. Over 1500 people have chosen us to fit their loft ladder, this is because we offer: • A FREE home visit • A FREE written quotation

• Fully guaranteed • A large selection of ladders

ABOUT ME “I’ve always been mad about plants and gardens - I sowed my first packet of marigold seeds in my parents’ garden when I was 4 years old! I’ve got a degree in Horticulture and I’ve worked in a variety of horticultural roles, including a year at Kew Gardens. I set up Tim Does Gardens in 2016 to give my clients in Cheshire, the Wirral and London beautiful gardens that are full of year round colour, fragrance and interest”

“Tim has a real passion and knowledge of gardening and garden design. He’s head and shoulders above another gardener I used and he’s helped me create a beautiful garden” “Tim is reliable, makes excellent recommendations, sticks to budgets and does great work for me. My garden stayed lovely until much later in the year than usual”
