In the Garden - February

February, 2017

With signs of spring approaching all around us and the days getting longer it's certainly time to get out in the garden.  As usual the RHS have plenty of jobs for us to do in the garden this month:  


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

2. Chit potato tubers

3. Protect blossom on apriocots, nectarne and peaches

4. Net fruit and vegetable crops to keep the birds off

5. Prune winter-flowering 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 overgorwn 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
