Plant for Winter
February is the latest for planting new citrus trees. What garden and household does not benifit from a lemon, orange or grapefruit tree? Citrus provides a valuable source of vitamin C and lemon and orange juice can be made easily at home from the fresh fruit.
Roses should also be planted at this time - again really the last month that is acceptable to enable them to flourish.
This is the time to plant potatoes and strawberries and that new avocado tree you want to put in the garden.
Dahlias will start to bloom and should be fed and staked.
If you are lucky enough to have bulbs to plant this is the time to do it.
hope you winter planting is a success!
