There are a range of jobs green-fingered types can carry out to ensure their yard looks as good as their garden pond.Green-fingered enthusiasts who have invested in pond pumps, liners and filters to create a wonderful garden pond for the spring should not be resting on their laurels this month.
This is because there are plenty of jobs to be getting on with in the yard before the end of February, according to the Get Reading news source.
Perhaps the most important task is to prune plants to ensure the outdoor space looks blooming marvellous in the spring.
Columnist Linda Fort said those with buddleias and mallows should get snipping now, although summer flowering deciduous shrubs should be left to grow for a couple of months.
She underlined how snowdrops and crocuses should have survived the chilly weather, explaining they have started to appear in her own garden.
Those who prune "will be rewarded with good straight new growth and plenty of flowers," she concluded.
Earlier this month, the Royal Horticultural Society stated that February is a good time to lay new turf.
The charity's column in the Daily Telegraph may have provided food for thought for garden pond owners looking at ways of sprucing up their yards.
