Cover peach trees and nectarines growing outside with plastic sheeting draped over a wooden frame to keep rain off. Raindrops carry the fungus which causes peach leaf curl, so keeping the rain off protects your trees from this debilitating disease.
Plant of the Week: Primrose
This diminutive little trooper gets its name from the Latin for ‘first to flower’ – and every year the first primroses to unfurl deliver their message that spring is just around the corner.
Wild primroses – Primula vulgaris – are expert at colonising wild patches on banks and under hedges and a must-have in wildlife gardens for their early nectar. But the primrose family also offers vibrant colours from orange to red and magenta: bedding primroses and multi-flowered polyanthus are brilliant at filling pots and baskets with cheerfulness at this time of year. Try partnering them with snowdrops, crocuses and early-flowering narcissi like ‘February Gold’ for a real early spring pick-me-up.
