February Garden Maintenance Tips
Spread a layer of well-rotted manure around roses and shrubs
Check fleece or other insulation is still in place around pots and borderline-tender plants
Why not install a nest box with a camera to watch the birds raising their chicks in Springtime?
Firm back down any plants that have been lifted by frost or loosened by wind-rock
If the snow falls, knock it off evergreen shrubs, hedges and conifers to prevent branches snapping under the weight
Sort out and clean up canes, plant supports and cloches, ready for use in spring
Clear away old plant debris from pond margins and scoop out any leaves that have fallen into the water and remove pond netting installed in autumn to catch falling leaves
