Weekend Garden Jobs – 10 January 2014
Prune wisteria back to two/three buds from the main stem.
Keep off water logged lawns – once the water has drained go over the areas that pool water with a garden fork digging it in approx 15cm and give a wiggle – repeat the process all over the affected areas at 15cm intervals – this should help to improve the drainage.
Sow geraniums, begonias, snapdragons and sweet peas.
Get your lawnmower serviced/sharpen the blades.
Keep the bird feeders topped up.
Check variegated shrubs and prune out any plain green stems cutting them as near to the base as possible.
Check tree ties and plant supports.
