First sign of Spring?!!
The good news is that green bin collections will start again in Henbury NEXT WEEK — on Thursday the 16th Feb, so you can start pruning now!
Advice from the Royal Horticultural Society for February jobs includes:
- Prune winter-flowering shrubs that have finished flowering
- Divide bulbs such as snowdrops, and plant those that need planting 'in the green' — this means after flowering, but while the leaves are still intact
- Prune Wisteria
- Prune hardy evergreen hedges and renovate overgrown deciduous hedges
- Cut back deciduous grasses left uncut over the winter, remove dead grass from evergreen grasses.
Attached is the full schedule of Bin Collections for Henbury in 2017.
