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.

What do you look for as the first sign of Spring? Please let us know, we would love to hear from you at editor@henbury.org
