Gardening ideas and reminders for your rose garden in February.
Vigorous Floribundas can begin to be pruned at the end of February if you live in a mild district.
Maintain a temperature of ten to fifteen degrees in your greenhouse as your pot roses will now be starting to grow.
Spray the shoots of your pot roses with water to create moist conditions in the greenhouse. These new and tender pot rose shoots can be badly damaged by caterpillars and greenfly so keep a watch for these pests and spray at the first sign of any attack.
Your stocks which budded last year can now be cut back.
Planting can continue in light soil areas of the garden if the temperature is above freezing, even though the garden soil will almost certainly be wet and cold.
