• The Chichester Gardener

Gardening jobs to do now: February


We know it's still cold but here are just some of the gardening tasks you or we could be doing now...so clear your head and get out into the garden. The Chichester Gardener is based in West Sussex so if you live a little further north you might have to delay a bit depending on the weather!
