JOBS TO BE DONE

Now is also an ideal time to plant roses. Avoid plant­ing where roses have pre­vi­ously grown. Lightly prune bush roses to pre­vent wind-rock. Climb­ing roses can be pruned now too. Please the senses by bring­ing some pot­ted herbs into the kitchen for easy use through win­ter. Pots of herbs will keep grow­ing all win­ter in the warmth. Try chives, basil, sage or mint for fresh, flavour­ful sea­son­ings. For a great spring dis­play, grow some tulips in con­tain­ers. Ei­ther mix with other spring bulbs or grow tulips on their own, packed closely to­gether for greater im­pact.
