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.
