What should I be doing in the garden - Feb 2018
Wednesday, 28 Feb 2018 10:14 am
Towards the back end of February, you should be thinking about pruning back your summer flowering clematis and any other vines such as Ivy & Virginia Creeper. By doing this you are keeping the plant tidy and healthy as it encourages new growth and flowers.
You should also be pruning back any hardy fuchsias right back to one or two buds each. They will look very small but these plants will bounce back into full flower by summer.
Throughout this month you can continue to plant raspberry canes ready for summer. Also ensure that you protect the blossoms on your apricot & peach trees. If we have a late cold snap this could cause damage to the plants and produce a lack of fruit. These trees can also be planted now.
If you are in the stage of planning your garden you should consider what plants would be best suited to the soil that you have, if you are unsure then you should purchase a soil testing kit. This will tell you how acidic your soil is and you can gain a greater understanding of your garden this way.
If you are considering having a move around in your garden this year, this is the best time to move deciduous trees or shrubs. Ensure that the soil is not frozen or waterlogged when you do this.
When planning your garden hanging baskets and containers are often forgotten about, now is a great time to think about whether you want to include a colour scheme in your garden. This is all something our nursery team can do for you. You can bring in your empty hanging baskets and containers and our nursery team can fill them for you, then around mid May you can collect them and your baskets will be overflowing with flowers and bursting with colour.
