It's time to...

  • Plant colourful, evergreen Phormium 'Cream Delight' in a patio pot to brighten winter displays
  • Take care not to walk over borders or on lawns where spring bulbs and flowers will be emerging
  • Order young plants from mail-order companies. These will usually be delivered during April and May, ready to be used in summer displays
  • Sort out and clean up canes and plant supports, ready to be used in early spring
  • Use a pressure washer to clean paths, steps, paving and patios
