February-Crocus

Filed Under: Blog, Calendar by Davy February 1, 2014, 10:14 am

This month many of the spring flowering bulbs starting to appear. Obviously what comes up depends on what you’ve previously put in the ground. Crocuses, daffodils, snowdrops and even the buds on trees will all stat to make an appearance. The weather in February can be mixed and it is likely that the colder weather will be around now too, spring is just around the corner!

There’s plenty to be getting on with in the garden, it’s not a high pressure time but some time spent outside will have benefits lateen in the year.

  • Cut back hedges before the birds start to nest in them.
  • Mulch trees, shrubs and climbers.
  • Prune large flowing clematis.
  • Water trees flows and shrubs in containers if the weather is dry or windy.
  • Plant bare-root and container-grown trees, shrubs and hedging.
  • Trim winter flowering hedges once they have finished flowering.
  • Plant summer flowing bulbs in beds or pots.
  • Sow sweet peas.
  • Last chance to prune apples and pears before the leaves break.
  • Prune autumn-fruting raspberry canes.
