EDP Norfolk - - GARDEN GUIDE -

Tulips can be planted out now; put a marker in when plant­ing to avoid dig­ging them up by mis­take.

Soft fruit bushes such as goose­ber­ries and red and white cur­rants can be pruned now. Prune to an out­ward-fac­ing shoot to keep the mid­dle of the bush open, avoid over­crowd­ing and cross­ing branches.

Don’t al­ways be too keen to tidy plants for the win­ter; many seed heads in­clud­ing echinops, se­dums, teasels and mis­cant­hus have win­ter in­ter­est and pro­vide food and hi­ber­na­tion spots for ben­e­fi­cial in­sects.
