Plus protect tender citrus trees and visit the UK’s largest winter garden
Plant this There’s no shame if you haven’t sunk a single tulip bulb into the ground yet. I don’t believe in subtlety when it comes to spring planting, so I am opting for the tangerine, multiflowered T. praestans ‘Shogun’ and the inky purple ‘Havran’, both flowering in late March and early April.
Protect this Lemons and other potted citrus trees are too tender to stay outside, but resent being kept in gloomy, centrally heated homes over winter. Place in a cool, bright but frost-free spot (minimum 7C) such as an unheated covered porch. Let the soil dry out between waterings and feed with winter citrus fertiliser.
