From the middle of this month, during mild spells, late-flowering clematis can be pruned hard.
But make sure not to prune early flowering clematis, those that flower between February and May. As if you were to prune them now, you would cut off the branches that are developing the flower buds. They only need pruning when they get out of control.
You can now begin to start Chitting potatoes. Place the potatoes in egg boxes or on paper in a cool place and leave them there whilst the shoots appear. If your garden is exposed or in a colder part of the country, you may wish to delay Chitting your potatoes for a few weeks till you can plant into your garden.
