February is a great time to start planning and preparing your garden for the spring. There are a variety of jobs that can be done in the garden during this month, including:
Pruning: Prune shrubs and trees to remove any dead or damaged branches. This will promote healthy growth in the spring. Check out our range of tools here.
Cleaning: Clean up any debris that has accumulated in the garden over the winter. This will help to prevent pests and diseases from taking hold.
Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch to your garden beds to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
Composting: Start a compost pile to turn your kitchen and garden scraps into nutrient-rich soil for your plants. We have a range of composters to suit any garden, see them here.
Seed Starting: February is a great time to start seeds indoors for vegetables, herbs and flowers. This will give them a head start before they can be planted outside.
Irrigation Checkup: Check your irrigation system to make sure it is in good working order. Repair any leaks or damage before the spring.
By taking the time to perform these tasks in February, you will be well on your way to a beautiful and productive garden in the spring.
