Flower garden job checklist

22 - 28 February 2016

It's time to...

  • Prune summer-flowering clematis, cutting above a low pair of green buds
  • Cut out dead stems of ceratostigma and hardy fuchsias
  • Prune all stems of Hydrangea paniculata down to about three buds from soil level
  • Prepare areas in flowerbeds ready for sowing hardy annuals in late March and into April, digging over, weeding and enriching the soil
  • Lift and divide congested border plants
  • Plant out lilies to fill gaps in borders, or grow them on in pots
  • Trim winter-flowering heathers
