February

February is a good month for preparation, early  sowing and deciding what to grow. Make a garden plan, move your rotations on. Check through your old seed packets and see what  is OK and what you will need to order.

If you have a greenhouse and a propagator you can early sowings of lettuce, onion, parsley, tomato, aubergine, peppers and tagettes (a very useful companion flower).

Order seed potatoes , if not done so already and put them to chit if they have arrived.

Order and plant Jerusalem artichokes.

Last chance to prune apples and pears.
