Sheffield Park

This was another successful trip. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we have received a great deal of compliments. The committee are now busy planning a couple of exciting trips for next year for you to enjoy.

In the Garden – 


Jobs to do in the garden over the Winter

  • On rainy days, get out the seed catalogues and cheer yourself by making your selections for next year. I have noticed that there are quite a few new varieties around now for us to experiment with.

  • Lift dahlia tubers after the first frost, let them dry and then store them in a cool dry place.

  • Keep an eye on the night temperatures are you may need to get the greenhouse heater out.

  • Make sure that you have insulated the greenhouse and moved all you plants that need protecting into it.

  • Protect frost-hardy plants like agapanthus with a tick mulch.

  • Wait until after the first frosts to lift and store your parsnips etc.

  • Increase your stock of plants by taking hardwood cuttings.

  • Insulate outdoor taps.

  • Clean spare pots ready for next year, as well as all garden tools

  • Take advantage on dry and not frosty days to plant dare-rooted roses etc

  • Prune apple and pear trees.
