Growing Guide – February


Jobs To Be Getting On With

This month sees the days start to lengthen gradually and therefore you can slowly begin to increase the frequency with which plants are watered; nonetheless the soil should be kept on the dry side through the whole of the period from November to February. Wherever possible, plants should be watered by standing the pots in a bowl of water and leaving them until the surface of the compost glistens; the pots can then be removed and allowed to drain before returning them to the bench top. If watering plants from above, place the spout of the watering can under the leaves and try to water before midday.

In this months February Growing Guide we’ve put together a guide on pruning Wisteria.
