Events & Workshops
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.
