Weekly Garden Checklist ...

Good Morning!
It's Monday so it is time for another Weekly Garden Checklist. 
Incase this is the first time you have seen this particular themed post, it's a quick list of jobs you can be doing in the garden this week.
Let's get started!

1. Seeds - On a rainy day why not go through your seed collection and throw out any old & unused seed packets then replace those that you like. You could also make a list of what you have to make it easier than sifting through each one every time you need to check! You may also be able to take advantage of offers with the new seed catalogues being released at this time of year.

2. Cyclamen  -Keep checking for Grey Mould or fallen leaves on plants such as Cyclamen daily and remove when seen. Also it is better to water them from below to prevent wet leaves and the plant rotting. If you want to keep them indoors like me then they like a cool location without direct sunlight. So my North facing un-heated conservatory suits them fine! 

3. Hellebores - Check foliage for signs of black spot, if seen cut down the stems but don't place them on your own compost heap as the spores will spread. It's best to either burn them or place them in your council collection bin. Cutting out these stems will also help the new flower shoots get all the light they need.

Thanks for stopping by,
