Gardening: Jobs to do


Deadhead and multiply

If you have some perennials you don't want colonising the entire garden, deadhead now. Some are prolific and very keen to seed. At the same time, collect seed from those you'd like to multiply.

Cut and bulk

Take cuttings from all your favourite plants to bulk up your plantings and to replace anything that you lose over the winter months.

Get planting

If you've ordered trees from mail-order nurseries, plant as soon as possible as they're often root-trimmed.

Hedge your bets

You can plant new hedges from now on, but think ahead - hedges will grow wider than you ever imagined.
