If this wet weather of February continues throughout the month, then March will be a busy month. Conditions will determine how much can be done but light forking of beds and borders will be a good start. However, if the soil is dry enough, then digging the vegetable area will be good.
This is the month when I like to prune my roses and give a good feed of potash and mulch.
Also it is the month when the garden centres will have their full range of “plugs” like fuchsias, pelargoniums and tomatoes. So I shall be working out my needs and go shopping. Towards the end of the month it will be the time to start making small sowings of salad crops and other small seeds outside in prepared ground, but covering with cloches to give some protection. Also I hope to sow a few marrow and courgette seeds in pots in the greenhouse. All this depends on the weather conditions and being prepared for any late frosts.
Again, if we get a dry spell it will be a good thing to get out and tidy up all round and get rid of the 'ravages of winter’
Tip of the month: Don’t overdo things in the garden!
