Flower garden job checklist

17 - 23 February 2014

It's time to...

  • Sow sweet peas in deep pots and pinch out shoot tips once two pairs of leaves have developed
  • Cut back old stems of mallow (Lavatera) to ground level, taking care not to harm new shoots
  • Plant hedging plants
  • Prune down stems of dogwoods, willows, cotinus and paulownia
  • Fork and rake over the soil in border areas where you want to sow hardy annual flowers
