Winter Gardening Jobs
Although winter isn’t the best time for gardening as the other seasons may be, it’s just as important to look after your garden during these colder months to ensure healthy growth next year!
Plant winter flowering bulbs
If you haven’t already, make planting winter flowering bulbs top of your list. Doing so at the beginning of the season by the very latest will mean bright colours from January through to spring.
Deadhead your autumn flowering plants
Some of your plants will be starting to wilt and fade; carefully remove the dead heads to encourage healthy re-growth and blooms in the new year.
Prune summer flowering shrubs
With our Ratchet Secateurs (SKU: 26669) you can cut back the summer shrubs to save you a job in the spring and promote better growth too!
Move your potted plants indoors or into a greenhouse if you have one to avoid damage. If you don’t have a greenhouse we sell an amazing 4 Tier Mini Green House (SKU: 27206) to place all your pots into.
But for those plants you can't re-pot, try our Plant Protection Bags (SKU: 22674) to keep the frost away!
