February gardening tips!

The sun has just started to make an appearance again this month, so the temperature should be a little warmer making it the perfect time to start getting your garden ready for spring!

Nesting box

It was National Nesting Box Week last week so if you haven’t got your nesting box yet, now is the time! You should fit your nesting box to a tree trunk or wall, high enough off the ground to keep it out of reach from other animals – read our handy tips here.
