EASTER

Easter weekend is the time that most people start gardening and begin the DIY projects that they have been putting off “until the weather gets better”.

When potting or planting use a mat and kneel rather than bend when doing close weeding or planting. Change positions regularly. Try kneeling on one leg for a while. If you have to lean over a border, use one of your arms to support your body.

When digging alternate the foot you use to drive the spade into the ground. Keep your feet hip-width apart and use your legs rather than your back. Alternate which hand is at the top and bottom of the spade and which side you throw the soil. Take small spadefuls and take regular breaks.
