It might be winter, but that doesn’t mean you can stay inside as there aren’t plenty of jobs to get ahead with in the garden. It’s important at this time of the year to keep on top of jobs and prepare for the seasonal ahead as Adam Pasco explains.
With spring in mind, Ken Crowther has been to the Royal Horticultural Garden Hyde Hall in Essex to meet garden manager Ian Bull to talk about the colour and fragrance you can still find in the midst of winter.
Many people think that the garden goes to sleep in winter, but there are still lots of jobs to do as it is a good time to get ready for the year ahead. Garden manager at the RHS garden Hyde Hall talked to Ken Crowther about some of the jobs that can be done now.
For champion dahlia grower Dave Gillam, dahlia’s have been his life since he was a child. He’s now cut down on the amount he grows and has them for garden colour rather than for showing. Dave explained to Ken the best way to care for them in the winter.
Winter is often thought to be a dull time of the year in the garden. However, with a little planning and purchasing that need not be the case. There is a range of exotic, beautiful and interesting winter flowering plants. Geoff Hodge and Ken Crowther discuss what you can do to inject interest into the garden.
