In the Garden - February

February, 2018

It may be cold outside, but the green shoots of the daffodils and glimpses of white snow drops are showing signs that Spring is on its way.  

There are plenty of jobs to do in the garden this month to prepare for the season ahead.  As usual the RHS  have come up trumps with their very useful top 10 tips for the garden this month: 


1 Prepare vegetable seed beds, and sow some vegetables under cover

2 Chit potato tubers

3 Protect blossom on apricots, nectarines and peaches

4 Net fruit and vegetable crops to keep the birds off

5 Prune winter-flowering shrubs that have finished flowering

6 Divide bulbs such as snowdrops, and plant those that need planting 'in the green'

7 Prune Wisteria

8 Prune hardy evergreen hedges and renovate overgrown deciduous hedges

9 Prune conservatory climbers such as bougainvillea

10 Cut back deciduous grasses left uncut over the winter, remove dead grass from evergreen grasses
