Tidying up and protection jobs need to be done this month but it’s also the ideal time for some new planting.
Fruit trees and bushes, roses and hedging should all be planted this month. Come along and see our full ranges.
Planting of evergreen shrubs and conifers needs to be done early in the month. Use plenty of mulch around the evergreens to prevent the soil from freezing.
There’s still time to plant more spring flowering bulbs particularly tulips in borders and containers. Raise containers on pot feet to help drainage and protect from frosts.
Winter bedding plants such as pansies, primula and winter cabbage need to go into your containers along with your bulbs.
