January checklist

By January 1, 2017Uncategorized

Jobs for your garden this month……….

Deadhead winter pansies to keep them flowering.

Prune wisteria, shortening side shoots to about 5cm.

Cut stems of late flowering clematis to close to soil level.

Mulch gunnera, ideally with straw to prevent frost damage.

Tidy up sedum plants by cutting dead stems to just above soil level, taking care not to damage new shoots.

Plant snowdrops by buying pot-grown bulbs.

Fork out perennial weeds.

And don’t forget to wish for some dry weather….the ground is saturated! And if anyone mentions hosepipe bans……….

Will be back soon with tips on propagation……the sowing season is almost here!

Happy gardening……….Freddie.
