Flower garden job checklist

10 - 16 March 2014

It's time to...

  • Plant lily bulbs in pots for colourful summer displays
  • Prune shrub roses to low new shoots
  • Cut back overgrown honeysuckle stems close to their base, just above new shoots
  • Trim back old shoots of perennials left for winter interest, taking care not to damage emerging new growth
  • Prune tall, leggy mahonia by cutting off the leafy rosette at the top of stems to encourage branches to develop below
