April is, in most of the peninsula, the most important month of the whole year in an orchard Although there are still a few last days of cold, by the end of the month it is ideal that we have most of the summer vegetables planted.
It will also be time to gather spring onions, spinach, lettuce, turnips and radishes. And, as always until you collect them, hill garlic and onions.
April is also usually the month in which we will start working on most of the garden. And before planting it is important aerate and fertilize the soil.
What to sow and transplant in April
if you have done seedlings, It is time to transplant them into the garden. If you are going to buy a seedling, remember to plan beforehand what you are going to grow, taking into account the planting framework.
Most summer vegetables can be transplant to the orchard from mid-April:

What seedlings to prepare in April
Seedlings of some plants can also be prepared, which is better take to the garden later in the spring (and, of course, the rest of the vegetables that you can still plant in May):
Other garden tasks to do in April
In addition to all the work involved in organizing the summer garden, April is the month in which spring fully enters and with it the weeds and the insects.
During this month it is important to start controlling the pests, as well as starting to weed all the plants that do not interest us in the garden, a task that ideally we should do at least a couple of times a week.

By this time we should have well-grown broad beans and peas, which we cannot forget tutor so that they continue to grow properly.
With the arrival of the heat we must also water more often. If we don’t have a drip irrigation system and we plan to install it, it is better to do it sooner rather than later, since we will need it for sure as we enter May.
