February in Your Garden

Well I have been reading about the need for a friendly chat thread so thought I would kick it off. I hope I have not trod on anyones toes but cannot wait till March.

It has been a cold day today but the sun has made an appearance along with the daffs and snowdrops. All my plans seem so optimistc now hope we do not have another wet summer.

    I think in general us gardeners are an optimistic bunch image.  It was so good to be outside in the sunshine today and seeing shoots appearing.  I can never remember where I plant things and it's always a lovely surprise to see what pops up. 

  • I'm very excited about the new season. Some parts of my garden will be nearly two years old and I'm still amazed to find new growth emerging from the perennials. The weather does seem to be warming up and I've got everything crossed it doesn't rain too much this year. Hoping to put up yet more trellis this weekend and plant a lovely climbing rose and clematis cirrhosa. Happy gardening!

    Hi newbee flowergirl. I've ordered sunshine and rather less rain for this summer. Some parts of my garden have been under water for months now and today OH had a major dig at the outflow of the pond. Gushing away now, hopefully in time to see the fritillaries when they come through.

    Hi everyone, I've just bought a new pair of wellies and begun clearing the debris from the borders, trying not to get ahead of Spring in my eagerness, or tread on tulips and perennials whilst I prune back and dig out all the plants in the wrong place last year. image  I took a peek at my compost too and it's looking good but wet image so more protection needed next year.

    Also got some bargain plants in the half-price B&Q sale image which were extremely heavy carrying home. image Teach me to be greedy.

  • It looks lovely outside, I have nearly finished the cleaning so will be heading out there soon. Lotso f tidying to doimage

    Hello, I'm excited about the new growing season too. A lot of the beds have now been cleared of weeds and dead plants, others have been cut back and there are lots of spring bulbs coming up. The beds all of sudden look big and empty,ready for all the new plantsimage

  • Is it just me or do others out there just have to buy the plants in clearence to 'save them' image
