secateurs-240A few jobs that can be done this month:

  • Prune heathers by removing dead flower heads being careful not to cut into old wood
  • Keep on top of and remove germinating weeds
  • Lift and divide overgrown clumps of perennials to encourage invigorated growth and increase your garden stock
  • Gently scarify your lawn if not done in the autumn
  • Mow lawns regularly on a high setting for the first few cuts
  • Lay turf or seeds from the end of this month and into April
  • Prepare seed beds ready for planting up vegetables
  • Plant early varieties of potatoes
  • Sow seeds this month, check carefully as some will need to be started off inside and some can be planted straight out into the borders
  • Divide large clumps of herbs such as chives
  • Mulch beds and borders to keep weeding and watering to a minimum
  • Refresh and top dress containers with fresh compost
  • Begin to increase watering of houseplants, if the compost feels moist wait a little longer before watering.
