February is in the air, and you can spot the signs of spring approaching with tiny buds popping up everywhere. Its a busy time.

 

Bunched snowdrops can be split up earlier, for a beautiful display at the turn of the month.

Wisteria should be pruned back and likewise, any winter flowering shrubs that have finished their showing.

Cornus (dogwood) which is often grown for its colourful winter stems, should be cut back to its base and ornametal grasses have old foliage reduced to a few centimeters above ground.

Best we trim those Heathers as they finish flowering.

Bare rooted roses are often planted now.

Its time to plant Allium and lillies too!
