February is the month that ushers in Spring.
Crocus, hellebores, snowdrops, primroses and this year the daffodils are already in full bloom…
In mild areas of the U.K., such as our own Surrey Hills, Broad Beans can be sown directly into the soil in February. February is also a good month for planting bare-root shrubs and trees.
Sow sweet peas in pots indoors, chitt early potatoes,
In your polytunnel start sowing early carrots, leeks and cabbages.
Whilst we can have a mild February, it is a month that can turn on a sixpence and in no time we can be under a foot of snow, so be wary….
Enjoy your garden.
