Take the opportunity this month to get ahead of gardening jobs that you will thank yourself for once spring kicks in next month. Start sowing seeds in your heated greenhouse or on your windowsill to prepare for planting in spring. Some great seeds to sow this month include peas, kale, tomatoes, sweet peas, cosmos, salvias and cucumber. You can also plant out garlic and shallots in light soil, and start chitting your potatoes as soon as you have them. To find out more about chitting potatoes, read my blog here.
Please be sure to keep an eye on ITV on Sunday mornings from 10am, where I will be featuring on Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh with some gardening tips to prepare you for spring.
February is a wonderful month for enjoying the lightening days, anticipating spring, and showing your loved ones that you care. For advice and my best gardening tips, visit my website and YouTube channel.
