Your garden in February
Trimming and pruning is a key focus this month, trim back ivy and creepers if they have outgrown their space before birds start nesting in them. Prune winter-flowering shrubs that have finished flowering such as mahonia, heathers and winter jasmine. You can now cut back deciduous grasses leftover Winter ready for fresh growth to start as the weather warms up.
