In these early months of the year, it is a great time to plan and prepare your garden areas for the year ahead. Little chores such as clearing out the greenhouse works wonders for organisation and clearing your mind ready for creating your outdoor spaces.
Top 3 gardening tips from David Gibbons - Head Gardener, The Red House
1. At this time of year it’s always a good idea to clear away dead leaves or plant material from any annuals, day lilies and other perennials that look untidy, but be sure to leave some stems with old seed heads for the wildlife.
2. It’s definitely worth sowing Sweet Pea seeds indoors on a windowsill or in a glass house with a bit of heat, to get them started before moving them outside.
3. It’s an important time to prune wisteria and bush roses, ready for the magnificent blooms in the early Summer months.
