Things I should’ve done in the garden this weekend…….but didn’t !!

27 Jan


  • Remove the rather tatty leaves of Helleborus orientalis as the flowering buds are emerging. This way I get to see the flowers better and the plant will put up new fresh leaves.
  • Plant any left over bulbs – I put them in pots if I’m not sure where to put them in the garden.
  • Remove any perennial foliage that has been frosted and is now black and slimy !
  • Reduce the size of any over ambitious perennials in herbaceous beds – I have several geraniums that are rather thuggish !
  • Weed out perennial weeds that are now more visible as other things have died down. I struggle with geums, creeping buttercup and bittercress and its much easier to get them out now then later in the summer.

Photo above is to inspire me to get out there and tidy so that my garden looks just as gorgeous this summer !!
