Gardening in February

 

So as way of motivating yourself to get out back into the gardening in February why not use it as your “thing to take up” for Lent? Instead of giving something up why not do something that will benefit your body through exercise and your garden through hard work, dedication and perseverance. To get you started we’ve set out the following list titled “your gardening in February to do’s”;

 

  • Wednesday 22nd –  Prune any deciduous trees with damaged or decaying parts and identify and remove any broken branches you find on the way.
  • Thursday 23rd – Start thinking about what and where you’re going to plant. Order seeds early this month to take avail of seasonal discounts.
  • Friday 24th – Clear garden paths of any weeds that have sprung up over the winter months.
  • Saturday 25th – Clean and repair any garden tools you may have so they are ready for the coming weeks.
  • Sunday 26th – If you haven’t already done so give your lawn its first cut of the year
  • Monday 27th – Check the lawn for any moss that may have built up. Use a rake to remove it or purchase a product to do the hard work for you.
  • Tuesday 28th – Get cracking on a compost heap and get into the habit of adding to it daily.
  • Wednesday 30th – Start to shape out the lawn and plant borders to neaten up the edges and add some definition to your garden.

 

So there you have it an easy “to do” list for gardening in February. After a couple of weeks the garden will start to show shape and after a few months the hard work will be worth it and you can reap the rewards of your efforts. Happy pancake Tusday folks.
