Top tips to help your Spring garden out of the Winter blues…..

Winter is normally a quiet time in the garden but it won’t be long before spring arrives and you’ll be caught up in the frenzy of seed-sowing, growing, and nurturing your garden as it comes to life! Getting your garden in order early will help make the spring a little less hectic.
  1. Order summer flowering bulbs and seeds – most online retailers will have these in stock now, so order early to avoid them selling out
  2. Clear up flower beds and borders – cut back the old growth and weed out any unwanted debris or leaves.
  3. Hunt down garden pests now – Pests which hibernate in the crowns of your perennial plants need to be eliminated now before they bounce back to life as the weather warms up.
  4. Install water butts – Not only is it better for the environment to use rainwater, but ericaceous plants such as Camellias prefer it as tap water can be too alkaline.
  5. Move deciduous shrubs now – badly placed shrubs should be moved now whilst they are dormant. Dig around them to ensure you protect the roots.
  6. Fix fences, gates and trellis – whilst the growth in the garden is low, you can access fence panels to ensure they are fully protected
  7. Get your garden furniture out of storage – if you have wooden furniture, now is a good time to oil it, and wash down any residue from last year
  8. Pray that the sun shines!!!!
