27 - 2 February 2014

It's time to...

  • Raise lettuce and salad crops in pots for early pickings
  • Water potted fuchsias sparingly to prevent compost drying out completely
  • Prune grapevines before they come into growth, when their sap starts rising
  • Bring pots of strawberries under cover to encourage early fruiting
  • Start sowing seed of summer bedding and crops that need a long growing season to mature, such as pelargonium, petunia, verbena, salvia, lobelia and begonia
