March madness – pruning advice and lawn care
Posted on March 03, 2016 by Potter & Rest
- Roses and fruit trees should be trimmed back
- Perennial shrubs and ornamental trees will need pruning for shape
- Clip heathers and lavenders too
- Cut back loose hanging ivy branches and remove any that have attached themselves to guttering and wooden window frames
- Also cut late flowering clematis back to the ground
- Cut back buddleia to within six inches of the older wood. If you have a plant that has been neglected this can be cut to waist height.
- Repair any damage to the lawn by re-sowing bare areas with grass seed. Edges can be repaired with squares of turf
- Stay off the lawn until it is drier as in wet conditions it can be easily damaged.
