February – What’s going on in the garden?

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

So what’s going on in the garden right now? Here are a few tips……

- Wrap up warm!
- Watch the weather forecast for frosts and keep your less hardy shrubs wrapped in fleeces
- Cut back ornamental grasses
- Prune back shoots on Hydrangeas
- Prepare the borders for planting
- Consider aerating the lawn late February
- Get your power tools and mower serviced
- Order the Summer bulbs


Probably one of the simplest but most effective demonstrations of the value of lawn aeration.

It’s at times like this that we can also see the impact of the Autumn and Winter months on the garden. The lack of foliage often draws our attention to problems that need addressing. It might be a broken fence panel or post, a shed roof that needs resurfacing, a patio or terrace that needs repointing, broken walls, lawn edging, decking surfaces that require cleaning and recoating, pathway and driveway repairs, or broken garden or water features.

Now, while the garden is still relatively dormant, is the best time to address these issues.

Flowers to look out for in February include; Snowdrops, Hellebores, Violets, Winter Jasmine and of course those early Daffs.

I hope you enjoy February in your garden.
