Spring is fast approaching and the days are getting warmer and longer. We can start to spend more time in the garden as it starts to come to life.
Deadhead your Hydrangeas to allow for new growth - cut to about one third of last seasons growth.
Perennials that are becoming congested, can now be divided and replanted to give you more plants.
Cut back deciduous grasses to allow for new growth.
Vegetables and fruit
Start to sow seeds for tomatoes, courgettes and cucumbers in greenhouse or on windowsills.
Tie in raspberry canes as they start to up to support them for summer
Plant out your seed potatoes in growbags or beds ensuring you give then a sunny spot.
Looking Good This Month:
Prunus ‘Kojo no Mai’, Camellias, Daffodils
As your Daffodils turn over, remove the flowerhead, so the plant does not wase energy on the old flower and leave the foliage to die back naturally.
As you clear up the garden after Winter, remember to keep an eye out for any hibernating wildlife.
