February garden work

Renowned chilly, the month of February does not always keep its promises.

The gardener will have to adjust his practice to the vagaries of the weather to calmly prepare for the coming season.

> Plant garlic, onions and shallots, good drainage is necessary to limit the risk of bulb rot.
> Monitor and protect the artichokes according to the weather forecast.
> Monitor and protect crops under cover or under frames.
> Maintain the soil: incorporate the ground green manure, manure or compost on the surface.
> Prepare the squares that will accommodate your seedlings or plantings soon.

> Clean the trunks and large branches.
> Take preventive action against peach leaf curl.
> Intervene as a preventive measure against cylindrosporiosis of the cherry tree (leaves punctuated with small round brown spots which turn yellow and lead to early leaf drop).

> Clean, but not too much: the plants in place provide shelter and cover for the garden's fauna.
> Other less obvious roles: protection of the soil against erosion (loamy soils), against the loss of organic matter and mutual protection of plants against the cold.
> Prune hydrangeas at the end of the month.
> Prune summer flowering shrubs by airing the crown.
> Use pruning residues wisely: crush them and put them in mulch.
> Consider sowing green manure or spreading compost on open areas.

Planting the Cyathea

Where to plant itВ ?

Place the fern in partial shade or even in the shade. If the leaves have grown in the sun, they will be able to endure a few hours of summer sun.

Cyathea australis is probably as rustic, if not more than Dicksonia antarctica although this is more widespread. It tolerates windy situations better even if its foliage burns faster in the cold. Total defoliation occurs at around -4 to -5В В ° C, but it can resist to -9 to -10В В ° C if the temperature rises during the day.

So you can admire Cyathea on the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast in humid and semi-shaded atmospheric conditions.

When to plant the CyatheaВ?

In the spring preferably for planting in open ground.

How to plant it?

Tree ferns live in leached soils and require little organic matter. Plant them in heather or sandy earth type soil with the addition of peat or leaf potting soil, but make sure it drains well. In our temperate climates, it is common to see ferns planted on semi-shaded slopes to facilitate drainage at the foot.

In a pot, mix 50В% coarse leaf soil or peat moss with equal parts loam, sand and charcoal.

ImportantВ : do not forget to stake the stipe during the 2B years after planting, because the rooting is still shallow.

Species and Varieties of Cyathea

The culture of Cyathea is quite recent in the Northern Hemisphere, also the indications of hardiness come from the testimonies of nurserymen and collectors. These minima are indicative and may vary depending on various parameters such as the origin of the spores.

Australian tree fern, rough tree fern (English), Cyathea australis (syn. Alsophila has.)

  • Vegetation: Stipe 6-12 (20) В m high, up to 0.20В m in diameter, topped by a dark green sling crown 3В m long, emerging in 1 В m. Segments of linear thrown fronds.
  • Flowers and fruits: Circular sori under the sling. True indusia absent, but sometimes presence of small scales around the sore.
  • Qualities: Native to the humid forests of Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales (Australia), Tasmania and Norfolk Islands. Very variable taxon. Withstands -10 -12В В ° C, and the leaves roast at -6В В ° C. Prefers a sunnier exposure than Dicksonia antarctica and is more wind tolerant.

Soft tree fern, katote (maori) Cyathea smithii (syn. Alsophila s.)

  • Vegetation: Undergrowth fern reaching 8В m in height, 0.5-0.15В m in diameter of stipe. The rachis of the old fronds form a thick skirt, impressive to the ground below the crown. Mass of dark green fronds 2-2.50В m long. Underside of petioles covered with red and white star hairs and reddish brown scales.
  • Flowers and fruits: Small round capsules under the leaves diffusing sulfur yellow spores in abundance. Indusia saucer shaped.
  • Qualities: Found on all New Zealand islands as far south as Auckland Islands, in mountainous forest to lowland further south. In the Westland forest (South Island) grows in understory Podocarpus. Little appreciates the strong Australian heat or the North Island even if it tolerates the sun. To plant out of the wind. Slow growth. One of the hardiest after C.В australis.

Silver fern (English), ponga (Maori) Cyathea dealbata, (syn. Alsophila tricolor)

  • Vegetation: Tree fern up to 4.50В m high in cultivation, 10В m in nature. Stipe dark, quite thick up to 0.45В m in nature, topped by 3В m long fronds with silvery green lapels, but only in mature fronds over 1В year old. Silver petioles.
  • Flowers and fruits: --
  • Qualities: Present in pod. Would be a little less hardy than C.В smithii and a little more than C.В medullaris (-7 to -10В В ° C). Slow growing fern. Protect from the wind.

Cooper's Cyathea (Cyathea cooperi)

  • Vegetation: Stipe 0.10-0.15В m in diameter, vertically striped by the persistent light base of petioles. Petioles 0.40-0.50 (0.90) В m long, 2-4В cm wide, smooth, green to yellow-green, reddish on the underside. Base of the fronds covered with numerous pale brown to light yellow parchment filaments. Slightly dense fronds appearing gradually during the season, 1.50-2В m long and 0.9-1.25В m wide.
  • Flowers and fruits: Indusia absent and sore surrounded by ciliated scales.
  • Qualities: Often mistakenly named C.В australis. Native to the east coast of Australia, wetlands of Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania. Growth of the trunk faster than in C.В australis, 0.25-0.40В m per year or even more in a greenhouse (reaches 6В m in 15В years). Badly tolerates wind and frost (at -3В В ° C the foliage burns and at -6В В ° C the stipe dies), but well resists in open sunny environment. Slightly irritating filaments.


  • Vegetation: Fronds and scales paler than at the type.
  • Flowers and fruits: As a typical species.
  • Qualities: As a typical species.

Tree meadows fern (Cyathea dregei)

  • Vegetation: Stipe brown up to 4-5В m high by 0.20-0.45В m in diameter, with a dense crown. Sleeve of old fronds persistent and protecting it from cold. Fronds bi- or tripinnate up to 3В m long, sometimes hairy on the reverse.
  • Flowers and fruits: Up to 12 В ores per pinna.
  • Qualities: Large range in Africa, from Zimbabwe to South Africa. Unusual fern which would be suitable in Ћle-de-France, in Limagne (700В m), but not in BrittanyВ! To be exposed to intense sun to increase its resistance to frost (Mediterranean climate or tropical altitude). Resists fire. Poor soil.

Some advice for this month of February. The days are getting longer and the vegetation is gradually regaining its rights. You can start preparing the garden for the arrival of spring even if it is still very cold! - Choose the flowers you are going to plant - Prepare the seeds you are going to sow under a frame - If it does not freeze, you can still plant trees and shrubs with bare roots - Prune apple and pear trees if you have not already done so - As well as conifers to reduce their branching - From mid-February you can also start pruning your roses. If you haven't done so yet, there is still time to amend the soil with manure in order to nourish the soil deeply. We can offer you pure composted horse manure or mixed with compost. Contact us for more information. Phone 03 89 53 34 34.

The cold has made its appearance. Remember to protect plants still in the ground, make the first seedlings in the shelter and eat the last seasonal vegetables. Under a frame, sow the cabbages, watercress and a few aromatic plants that you leave in the shelter until spring, not forgetting the spring salads. On a warm layer, sow the leeks and spring carrots. On a beautiful winter day and in non-soggy soil, plant the garlic and shallots. Harvest the lamb's lettuce and winter cabbages. Butcher the leeks to fight against the cold. Force the endives. Remember to protect the vegetables still in place in the vegetable garden with winter cover. Protect the feet of your roses by forming a mound of earth on which you can put vegetable mulch. This intervention will protect the roots from the cold.

That's it, we are in November! We are entering a period of rest for all the plants in the garden. The days are getting shorter and after a very sunny October, the rain and the grayness set in. However, there is still some work to be done and in particular the preparation phase for next spring. So all to your spades, rakes, planters and other gardening tools. “At Sainte Catherine, all wood takes root”. This adage tells us that this is the best time to plant roses, trees and shrubs. By planting in November, you make it easier to root before the first winter frosts arrive. Before the ground gets too hard, don't forget to plant the spring bulbs as well: tulips, hyacinths, snowdrops or even crocuses. Collect all the fruit that litter the ground. At the end of the month, you can start pruning apple and pear trees. This is also the month to start planting them. Protect the plants most sensitive to the cold with a wintering veil. When all the leaves have fallen, take the opportunity to do a final, relatively tall mowing of the lawn. It also helps to clean the lawn effectively. You can permanently uproot your tomato plants. Harvest the last winter vegetables and leave the root vegetables in place. Begin to prepare the ground by plowing the soil which will breathe well during the winter. Incorporate manure, compost or any other organic amendment, they decompose slowly and are not washed away by the rains. The soil will therefore be ready to receive crops the following spring, boosted by this supply of nutrients assimilated over the months.

How to garden with clay soil? The clay soil retains water. In heavy rains, this can harm the roots of the plants. When the earth is wet, its work becomes arduous because it sticks to the gardener's boots and tools. Which makes the work more difficult. On the contrary, during hot weather, the earth compacts and cracks. It becomes hard and the seedlings have difficulty breaking through. A soil that is too clayey can be easily improved by regularly adding an amendment that will lighten its structure, at the rate of 100 liters of COMPOST per m2 and per year. Incorporate it by simple scratching, in the fall and spring. Also set up a permanent mulch to protect the soil and create humus that will promote its enrichment and lightening. It will also help aerate the soil with microorganisms. Meet at the self-service at the ANNA COMPOST site in Kingersheim. We are ready to welcome you and provide you with any additional information. Monday to Friday: 7 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday: non-stop non-stop from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tel 03 89 53 34 34

The month of SEPTEMBER is fast approaching…. Now is a good time to repair or replace "worn" grass. As we age, the lawn becomes overgrown with moss and weeds. Now is the right time to fix it or completely redo it. Remember to boost the germination of the seeds with fine compost and to facilitate the work, you can cover the old grass with a special TV50 mixture. Do not hesitate to contact us for advice and supply of soil and compost. Tel 03 89 53 34 34. Important steps to have a beautiful lawn: Clean the ground Level the ground Sow the lawn regularly Cover the seeds Roll the roller and especially do not forget to water to keep the ground moist until the first mowing.

What to do in the vegetable garden in AUGUST? There is no lack of work. Maintenance Water your vegetable garden very regularly without wetting the leaves if necessary. Weed the soil to avoid weed competition with your vegetables. Aerate the ground with a hoe so that it does not crack under the influence of heat. Complete the mulching if it has reduced. Butte fennel, celery and winter cabbage. Planting Plant savoy cabbages if possible near celery plants because these two plants have a beneficial influence on each other. Plant the leeks for this winter. Harvest Harvest tomatoes, zucchini and cucumbers, eggplants and peppers, summer lettuce and blanched celery, pickles at the end of the month, bush and row beans, peas. Sow Sow round beets for fall, lamb's lettuce, spinach, curly chicory, onions, turnips, etc.

Notice of extreme cold! Tips for gardeners who, with the sun in early April, have already laid out their gardens and currently find themselves with very low temperatures for the season accompanied by night frosts: If you can, shelter your plants in a greenhouse. Cover tomatoes, salads with a protective film. Finally, do not hesitate to mulch shrubs and other plants with mulch or woodchip, which will partially protect them from the cold. For any further information, we remain at your disposal at 03-89-53-34-34.

The vegetable garden in APRIL! Spring finally arrived. After switching to summer time, it is daylight later and everyone enjoys working in the vegetable garden even after a hard day's work! Be careful, you have to be careful. April can still hold some cold temperatures for us. Let’s not forget the saying of our grandmothers: "In April do not give up on yourself and in May do what you want". In the vegetable garden, it is high time to sow or transplant tomatoes, eggplants, zucchini. Plant strawberries, rhubarb, lettuce. If you haven't done it in the fall (in heavy soil for example), there is still time to improve the soil by burying organic matter such as compost for example. Watch out for slugs and snails! To dissuade them from approaching, mulch at the base of your young shoots with mulch or woodchip.

If you are not yet a fan, here are 7 good reasons to mulch your gardens: - Conserves humidity by limiting evaporation from the soil - Limits weeds (weeding before putting it) - Protects the soil and nutrients it contains - Develops microorganisms (worms, bacteria, etc.) therefore humus - Enriches and improves the soil while aerating it - Saves time (more hoeing, more weeding, less watering) - Saving 'money (more weedkiller, less water, less fertilizer)

In February, in the garden: Little by little, the vegetation takes back its rights. The days are getting longer. But while some days make us think that spring is not very far away, others remind us that it is still winter! Take the opportunity to prepare your garden for the new season that is coming. Trees and shrubs: This is the last time to plant trees and shrubs. As long as it doesn't freeze. Don't forget to amend the soil and water well. Flowers from the garden: If you have planted the bulbs in the fall, then you will have the joy of seeing the first spots of color appear soon: crocuses, snowdrops, the first tulips, etc. Vegetable garden: It is possible to sow the first vegetables, under cover: cauliflowers, lettuce, etc. Maintenance of roses: It is from mid-February that you can start pruning your roses. Planting is still possible. Do not delay too much, because in March it will be too late, especially if the weather is milder. If it has not yet been done, there is still time to amend the soil with manure in order to nourish the soil in depth.

Winter is here, the days are short. There is still time to plant the fruit trees if it does not freeze. Now is also the time to do the winter pruning of fruit trees. In the vegetable garden, it's time to harvest winter cabbages and leeks as well as, for lovers of old flavors, parsnips and Jerusalem artichokes! Under cover, start growing a few vegetables: salads, radishes and carrots. While most winter crops can withstand the cold without protection, it is advisable to protect them in the event of severe frost. Use a mulch or mulch for this, which will make lifting even easier if the ground is completely frozen. You can start preparing the ground for the first sowing and first planting. To do this, spread an organic amendment, ideally based on manure and compost, on your soil.

Some suggestions for feasting all year round:

The large plates of vegetables, have an undeniable aesthetic aspect and do not fail to flatter the pride of their creator. However,. the tailing of mountains of green beans, or the shelling of mounds of pea pods, will eventually tire the most motivated… I am not talking about chard, zucchini and other cornucopias which often find takers in the neighbors or that clutter up freezers. Only potatoes that are easy to store are completely consumed, but during this time they occupy a space (except new potatoes) that could be occupied by other vegetables that are infinitely more valuable. It is therefore useful to anticipate consumption. according to tastes and consumption periods, and to distribute production by cultivating areas corresponding to our needs.

Tinker with the moon + calculate if the vegetables like each other or not or repel certain insects? + alternate crops by calculating rotations according to the requirements of the vegetables… = big headache.

In my opinion, it is easier to make small plots that are easy to control, to strive from one year to the next not to make the plants of the same family succeed one another and to add a sufficient quantity each year. organic matter (well-decomposed manure, algae, compost, etc.) so as not to impoverish the soil.

Growing various and varied flowers, or installing nesting boxes for birds, makes a pleasant contribution to limiting pest invasions ...

Here is a selection of vegetables and herbs that have, to my knowledge, been grown in our garden.

For the dates of sowing or planting and harvest, refer to your gardening books or more simply, to what is marked on the seed packets. You can also trust street vendors and some garden centers. Above all, don't forget to trust your instincts to make your choices and your experiments, and don't hesitate to share (without imposing them) your feelings about cultivation methods, with your gardening companions.

Vegetables can be classified into many categories, we also offer a classification between "greedy", "reasonable" and "not difficult". This classification is based on the contributions of organic matter and fertilization.

These three categories can be used for crop rotation.
