What to do in your garden in February

It’s February! Here are the jobs you can be doing in your garden this month:-

– Trim winter flowering heathers as flowers fade;

– Cut back late summer and autumn flowering clematis to the lowest pair of strong buds;

– Sow bedding annual seeds (Begonia/Pelargonium);

– Prune winter-flowering shrubs that have finished flowering;

– Prune hardy evergreen hedges and renovate overgrown deciduous hedges before birds start nesting;

– Plant deciduous hedges by the end of the month;

– Prune existing roses and plant new rose plants;

– Cut back deciduous grasses left uncut over the winter;

– Check tree ties and plant supports in your garden.
