February Garden – Sowing & Planting!

Work this month sets the stage for a glorious spring garden. It’s time to get planning and take advantage of sunny days to complete odd jobs in your garden. You can start sowing seeds indoors ready to be planted out after all signs of frost are gone.

February is the perfect time to finalise your garden plans, order summer vegetable seeds and start sowing. We have a super vegetable seed range for those of you who want to plant your Vegetables from scratch. The seeds are sent in packets of various quantities (see listing) and full growing instructions are supplied. Fantastic value for money,improved germination and a fantastic way to reduce your grocery bills! Click here to view our full range.

Try swapping seeds from last year with a neighbour if you have some left over and fancy a change this year. Start your seeds indoors and move them outside after all signs of frost have gone and watch them flourish!

Get into the spring spirit of things by planning your displays and ordering your spring flowering bulbs now. Bulbs are well suited to beds, planting under trees and filling gaps in your borders amongst shrubs and perennials.

You can always try something different this year and naturalise your bulbs for a more natural look in your garden. Simply gently scatter a mix of bulbs and plant them where they fall.

Fruit and Vegetables

Don’t forget to feed your fruit! Fertilise the soil around the base of your fruit trees. Check any stored fruit for signs of disease and remove any infected fruit. Keep fruit in an airy, cool location for best results.

It’s time to start sowing your vegetable seeds indoors. February is perfect for sowing broad beans, cabbage, cucumber, leeks, peas, parsnips, chilli peppers and sweet peppers.
