Let's Get Gardening!

It’s been cold and damp and if you’re anything like us it’s been a real struggle to muster much enthusiasm to get outside. But the garden is showing signs of life and the forecast is for drier, warmer weather; so this weekend looks like the perfect time to get the garden ready for spring.

The easiest and most satisfying job is tidying up flower beds and borders, removing leaves and other debris that have built up over the winter and cutting back the dead growth from grasses and perennials and if the soil feels workable dig in around 5cm of organic compost into those empty garden borders ready for planting. Remember to look out for any hibernating insects or other wildlife and if possible leave them alone until the weather really warms up.

This is also a great time to make sure that tools are all in good working order, cleaning and oiling where necessary, giving the greenhouse a clean ready for planting later in the year, sorting out seeds and popping to the local garden centre as they are often selling off last year’s pots and containers to get ready for new stock coming in.

Also it’s a good time to take a look at the log store, have supplies got low? Remember the fire will probably be on for a little while yet and an outdoor fire pit or BBQ can turn a dull February day into an occasion. We’ve plenty of kiln dried logs available and with delivery in 2-3 working days you can get that store stocked up in no time.

So make the most of the beautiful early spring sunshine and have a great weekend’s gardening!
