February heralds prime planting time. Especially after a wet winter, this month, March and early April are the best months for bareroot planting as the ground will begin to drain and warm a little and unestablished roots are not buried in cold wet soil for too long. So get your fork and spade out and have some fun digging! It will keep you warm and work off the last of the Christmas Pud.
BTW that is the trench is for my 120/150cms beech hedge, dug last week. Remember, you usually only need a trench for plants that are 80/100cms and taller...
