In the garden in February

By Simon Kavanagh, Feb 2 2015 02:58PM

February might not strike you as the busiest in the garden diary. Spring is on the horizon and it's an important month to get one step ahead! Here's a few jobs to be getting on with:


* Prune apple trees and pear trees whilst they're still dormant.

* Prune hardy evergreen hedges

* Plant Lilies and Allium bulbs

* Chit potato tubers

* Prepare vegetable seed beds/sow some vegetables under cover

* Protect blossom on apricots, nectarines and peaches

* Towards the end of the month prune summer-flowering Clematis before active growth begins

* Prune winter-flowering shrubs that have finished flowering

* Prune Wisteria

* Renovate overgrown deciduous hedges

* Cut back deciduous grasses left uncut over the winter

* With spring on the way it's worth preparing your lawn for the season ahead. Try installing lawn edging which creates a neat and tidy appearance and makes maintenance easier.
