Now Spring is here and the temperature is rising there are numerous jobs to be tended to. Firstly plant any new evergreen trees, shrubs and hedges and move any existing evergreens.
It’s time to cut back any side shoots of Wisteria and Campsis to two or three buds, this will encourage growth and flowering. Also cut back any late summer/autumn flowering clematis to the lowest pair of strong buds.
I’ve always had a passion for gardening. My earliest memories were in my grandmother’s and grandfather’s garden and allotment where, at around the age of three, I planted my first pansy seeds from dried flower heads.
