Gardening Jobs For February – Which?

Install a nesting box

Make sure your box is not exposed to strong winds and strong sunlight. It should be about 1 to 3 feet from the ground, preferably on a log, but a wall or shed is also fine.

Look for a place that is difficult for cats or squirrels to get to and be sure to keep it away from bird tables and bird feeders as these will be busy.

Plant garlic outside

Get your garlic in the ground before the end of February.

Break the bulbs into each nail and plant the sharp ends so that the tip is just covered with soil. Place them at 15 cm intervals in rows at 30 cm intervals in a sunny place, preferably with well-drained soil.

Cut ornamental grasses

After looking good all winter, biscuit-colored stems from deciduous grasses such as Miscanthus become messy. Use clippers to cut them down to the ground level and be careful not to damage a new, green growth that sprouts at the base.

If you have a lot of plants, you can save time by planting the stems with one Hedging in 5-8 cm pieces that can be left on the floor to rot.

You can introduce the plants by feeding them and mulching around them.

Sow half a year hard

Some gentle plants, such as pelargonium and begonias, require a long growing season, so it is a good idea to start them with seeds at the beginning of the year. Check the back of the seed packet and sow if recommended as others may not stop until April or even May.
