Essential checklist for February

  • Divide large clumps of Snowdrops and replant elsewhere in the garden.
  • Prune Clematis and Wisteria.
  • Move deciduous shrubs if you think they would look better somewhere else.
  • Chit early potatoes in a tray and place them near a window (but not in direct sunlight) inside.
  • Start sowing mustard and cress on a windowsill.
  • Prepare vegetable beds by weeding, turning over the soil and digging in some organic matter.
  • Put a nest box up and stock up on bird food.
