Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs

  • If the ground is very wet do not even walk on it until some dry wather comes. Remove old crops not already taken out.
  • Control weeds over areas of ground that will be dug over later - hoe out the weeds, cover with old carpet or use suitable weedkillers. 
  • Plant new fruit trees and bushes. Control weeds around new and established fruit trees and bushes - these crop better without competition from grass or weeds.
  • Prune fruit trees and bushes now, if not done

Greenhouse and House Plants

  • Keep the greenhouse atmosphere dry by watering only as much as required.
  • A grape vine can be given more water towards the end of the month to encourage early growth.
  • Check all plants for pests such as greenflies, red spider mites or white flies, because these pests tend to build up unnoticed in winter.
  • See www.garden.ie for more information.
