What to do this time of year

Posted: 25/02/2015 at 19:16

Green claws, any perennials need dividing?  Or transplanting?  Everything where you would like it to be?  Mulching is worthwhile now after removal of any weeds that may be visible.  Maybe lilies to plant?

Mine are taken now...long 3 - 4" cuttings inserted around the rim of pots.  They root quickly.

Now is the time but, as already said, don't cut into green shoots.  if you do it will.produce ragged growth.  Easy to do

Digging in green manure

Posted: 25/02/2015 at 08:51

You can't dig very wet ground.  Just building up problems.  

when soil is workable bury your green manure .....upside down....and level.  It's still a little early to sow seed.  You can sow seed as soon as you have re- created a fine filth but add fertiliser too.

HELLO FORKERS!

Suggestions for a shady corner

depends on the plant chicken chaser.  Ferns usually have a lot of vigour so one of each is enough. Others can be divided later to plant as a group.  I occasionally plant in Threes but plants quickly make large size so one is enough after a season.

Not rotting Gillian. vine weevils.   Dig up your heucheras and wash them off.  Pot them up. they will regrow.  And sift through the soil.  Dig up the area of,the rootball and spread out soil on tray or bag.  Look out for the White grubs.
