☔️☔️☔️You don't need us to tell you there's been just a bit of rain lately, and with more forecast for the next few days you might as well make the most of it, grab your coat, and get some gardening jobs done!

☔️ WEEDING. Just after a good downpour is the perfect time to get your weeding done. Heavy rainfall means damp soil, which loosens up the weeds’ roots, making them much easier to extract.
☔️ PLANTING. For new plants and seedlings, planting in the rain can be of great benefit since you don’t have to worry about watering them. (Previous sowings may have rotted, so you may need to re-sow. Check seed packets as it may be too late now for some crops)
☔️ FEEDING. As well as sitting back and making the most of the rain watering your plants for you, you can take the opportunity to feed them too. Get out there with your fertiliser and sprinkle around the base of each plant. The rain will then help it to run straight into the roots for maximum uptake. Feed any plants, such as tomatoes, which may look as if they are running out of nutrients.
☔️ EDGING. Garden edging is the best solution for maintaining a trim border, and just after a rainy day is the best time to install it. Just like with weeding, the damp soil is your friend here. It’s much easier to shape with a spade or trowel, and the edging pins will sink into the ground much more freely.
☔️ SUPPORT. Your border plant's new top growth will be soft. Wire supports and pea sticks are easier to push in when the ground is wet.
☔️ PROTECT Keep rain off seedlings or strawberry flowers and fruit with cloches.
☔️ RESCUE Outdoor container plants can die if the compost becomes waterlogged. Rescue pots by removing trays from under them, at least for now and pot feet can help with drainage.
