The Donegan track followed our new feature: the Roots and Shoots Happy Gardening Tips - which we'll probably continue monthly. Chris Wood & Andy Cutting's Country Gardens played in the background. In case you missed them...!!!..
  • Snowdrops which haven`t flowered very well are probably overcrowded - just divide into smaller clumps for a good display next year.
  • Finish pruning fruit trees this month - before the buds swell.
  • It’s a good time to feed your roses.
  • Take a little time to prepare your vegetable garden soil for planting.
  • The addition of well-rotted manure or compost will do wonders for the soil.
  • Peas and sweet peas may be planted this month as well as strawberries, currants and brassicas. Time to start tomatoes, lettuce and many other vegetables from seed too.
  • And from mid-March you can plant out your chitted potatoes.
