Hello Forkers - March Thread

I've just come in to peel off yet another layer - it's really warm out there - the bluetits are popping in and out of the nestbox and the bees are a'buzzin 

Pruning

I would advise leaving them alone - their priority is to get a good root system developed first, which will  support the future top growth.  Without a good root system you'll have a rubbish plant.


I suggest a light feed of Fish Blood and Bone, a mulch with some compost/well rotted manure/soil conditioner and a bit of patience, then stand well back .........

Yes, they're perennial 


They're spring flowering ... usually slowing down and stopping as the warm weather arrives ... then sometimes they start again in the autumn but most wait until early spring, depending on the weather that year. 


You can lift and divide your primroses/primulas to increase their number - this video shows  you how

Farmers leave carrots and parsnips in the ground and cover them over with straw to prevent the soil freezing hard - this way they can usually be harvested through most of the winter.  If a hard freeze is forecast they will harvest extra in order to meet the demand during the freeze.
