In the Garden with John Curtis - Spring 2001

Continue to tidy the garden of leaves and debris

Sow sweet peas in pots (indoors)

Trim winter flowering Heathers

You can plants “pinks”, providing it is not too wet

Check over tools, such as lawn mowers, shears, etc

DO NOT attempt to mow lawns, and try not to tread on them if they are covered in frost

Try covering Rhubarb with well rotted compost and put a large flower-pot over them if you want a few early sticks

Clean seed trays and pots ready for the “Big Sow” in early March
