After a month of not really doing much, February is where you really should start to do something about your garden.
Look after shrubs and small bushes
In February there is still a risk of frost and snow, even though the temperatures may slowly start to rise. Any tender shrubs or trees, will appreciate a generous application of mulch. This will help to insulate and protect the roots from the freezing conditions.
If you tried to stabilise any trees or plants last month, check the tree ties to ensure they aren’t cutting into the bark or something similar.
