With spring just around the corner and the weather hopefully starting to warm up a bit over the next few weeks, gardeners all over the UK are no doubt getting very excited indeed about the upcoming season and what they can do with their outdoor spaces this year.
Now’s the time to start thinking about what you want to grow, sowing the likes of sweet peppers, tomatoes, chillies and aubergines in pots inside, so they’re ready to be planted when the weather allows it.
You can also prioritise hardy veg sowing come March so if you’re looking to grow spinach, for example, you can make your first outdoor sowing if you cover them up with fleece or something similar to protect them.
Make good use of your greenhouse if you have one by starting off the likes of parsley, lettuce and celery indoors, ready to be transplanted later on.
And make sure you get your flower beds for spring, picking off any developing seed heads on spring bulbs, pruning your roses, tidying up your borders and laying down some general-purpose fertiliser to help everything flourish as you want it to.
Now’s the time to put any plant supports in, as this will mean your plants can grow up easier. You may struggle to put the supports in later down the line, so this makes it easier for you too.
And finally, make sure you take the time to resurface any paths you may have in the garden, so that you don’t damage any plants that have already started to grow come spring.
