Topical Tips 2019

March :

  • Lift, divide and replant snowdrops now they have finished flowering
  • Finish pruning willows, dogwoods, roses, deciduous grasses (eg Miscanthus)
  • Use apple cores/left over small apples/squash seed to deter mice and voles predating the crocus corms. It’s most likely they predate the newest planted corms, even months after being planted, although those grown from seed seem to be less likely to be eaten.
  • Recommended seed very reasonably priced seeds, most less than £1 for larger quantities than you’d buy in a garden centre.
