February gardening jobs

Gardening jobs for February

It's always comforting to get back out in the garden after some rough winter weather. Seeing buds on the move reminds us that we'll very soon see our gardens at their best - as long as we get the after-winter jobs done!

A few ideas for jobs to do in February


We need more berries and currants in the garden

Berries and currants are great for wildlife

BBC Nature last week reported that some UK moth species had declined by up to 99%. More berry and currant plants in UK gardens could help reverse the trend. Great for birds too - and not to mention great to eat!

Put some berries and currants in your garden mix


Have you seen our new Rootgrow checkout calculator?

NEW Rootgrow checkout calculator

At the checkout, we now give you the option to add just the right amount of Rootgrow to your order, based on the plants in your basket. Rootgrow is used just once, at planting time. It greatly improves establishment and helps nourish the plant for life - 100% organic too.

It's Bramley Apple Week!

Bramley Apple Week

A whole week devoted to the Bramley apple! And rightly so. The offspring of that one tree in Nottinghamshire has found its way into pretty much every home in Britain. Well done that apple!

Bramley apples - and many more!


Focus on: Beech

Focus on: Beech

Beech is our best selling hedging plant, and also makes a fantastic specimen in standard tree form. Beech has a knack of producing some of the best year-round foliage, with warm and changing colours from its lush leaves.

Recipe: Rhubarb chutney

Recipe: Rhubarb chutney

Rhubarb season has started, and if you can find yourself a bunch or two (which will probably be Timperley Early), why not skip the crumble and try this tempting chutney recipe from The Devilled Egg Kitchen Academy.
