It’s February! Here are the jobs you can be doing in the garden this month with the kids:-

– Prepare vegetable seed beds, if weather is suitable (!);

– Cut down autumn fruit raspberry canes to ground level;

– Apply a general purpose fertiliser to tree, bush and cane fruit and mulch with well-rotted manure or garden compost;

– Apple and pear trees can still be winter pruned;

– Sow tomatoes indoors and allow to germinate in a warm place;

– Sow broad beans for an early crop indoors.

– Plant shallot sets 15-18cm apart with tips just under the surface;

– Start to chit potato tubers in egg boxes on a window sill;

For wildlife:-

– Put up nesting boxes for birds or renovate and repair old ones;

– Continue to provide a range of foods for birds through to spring.
