Things to do in February

Deadheading flowers

Trim off old flower heads on summer flowering perennials to encourage the growth of new flower buds. Not only will your plants look tidier, but they will reward you with a longer display of colour. 

Save seeds of beans

Start thinking about saving seeds of beans that are growing now in the vegie patch. Stop picking the beans off one or two plants (depending on how much seed you want) and allow the pods to mature and dry on the bush. Once dry, pop out the seeds and store in a dark, dry place to plant again next season. 

Order spring bulbs

Plan ahead and order spring bulbs now for planting in March. There is always a good range to choose from at this time of year. Try Jonquils and Bluebells for an easy set-and-forget buld display.

What's in season

Create your own lush summer garden.  A dry garden of sun lovers doesn't have to be all spiky like cactus, using a selection of succulents you can create a drought tolerant garden, full of colour on the hottest day, that looks good all year using foliage and form.
