Trees and shrubs

  • Continue planting trees and shrubs while they are still dormant.
  • Plant roses, but avoid areas where roses were previously grown.
  • Move established deciduous trees and shrubs, provided the ground is not frozen or waterlogged.


  • Prune apple and pear trees.
  • Prune wisteria.


  • Plan your vegetable crop rotations for the coming season.


  • Monitor the water level of your pond, as hard frosts can cause defects in the liner.
  • Rake out fallen leaves or shake off those that have gathered on protective netting.

Garden structures

  • In dry spells, you can treat timber structures, including garden furniture, with wood preservative and stain but only do this in a well-ventilated space.
  • Check and repair pergolas and arches.


If the weather is mild you can lay new turf or repair hollows and bumps. However if your lawn is looking past its best why not consider laying Artificial grass for a beautiful lawn all year round without the hassle of regular maintenance.
