Garden Calendar

February's Jobs in the Garden:

  1. Prepare vegetable seed beds, and sow some vegetables under cover
  2. Divide bulbs such as snowdrops, and plant those that need planting 'in the green'
  3. Net fruit and vegetable crops to keep the birds off
  4. Prune winter-flowering shrubs that have finished flowering including
  5. Prune Wisteria, hardy evergreen hedges and renovate overgrown deciduous hedges
  6. Cut back deciduous grasses left uncut over the winter, remove dead grass from evergreen grasses

**Please don’t forget to put some food out along with fresh water for hungry birds**
