  • Trees, shrubs and roses can be planted towards the end of the month

  • Certain variaties of turnip can be sown at this time of year (we can sow seeds for you.  We often do this alongside a garden tidy up)
  • Hardy ornamental vines, such as Virginia Creeper and Boston Ivy, can be trimmed back now in preparation for the growing season
  • We can treat your wooden garden furniture for you.  
  • When Winter Jasmine has finished flowering prune that back
  • Sow hardy winter types of lettuce and spinach.  Plant them under cloches.  We can supply cloches for you. 
  • Put netting over fruit bushes and winter brassicas as they are extremely attractive to certain garden birds.
