Gardening tips for February

  • Time to prune your wisteria – cut back side-shoots on the main stems to two or three buds.
  • Plant out shallots and onions in well-drained, previously manured soil – for heavier soils wait till next month.
  • With spring just around the corner take hardwood cuttings of Honeysuckles, Weigela, deciduous Viburnums, Spirea and Rosa rugosa.
  • Plant bare-rooted trees which are much cheaper than those in pots, so a good chance to save a few euros after Christmas!
  • Clear away dead plant material and seed heads from your borders to make way for imminent new growth.
  • Give the grass a trim during milder spells later this month, taking care not to cut it too short.
