February Jobs For The Plot
For us, February feels like the first month we 're truly getting busy on the plot. Whilst the weather remains cold and unpredictable with warmer days but still below freezing nights we definitely feel like progress gets made. Along with planning our beds and pots here are the jobs we'll be focussing on this February.
Sowing in February
Despite the unseasonally warm beginning of the year, the temperatures can drop sharply. Whilst some veg can be sown outdoors (broad beans) your best bet is to sow early varieties of veg (brussels, sprouting broccoli etc)indoors or under cover.
It is also a good idea to begin warming seed beds with sheets of plastic or poly material.
We love stocking the pantry with hearty winter veg!
Despite the bleak weather February can still bring good crops and you can hopefully harvest the following for soups, stews and pickles.
Winter cauliflower, Winter cabbages, parsnips, leeks, swedes and kale.
Preparing A Runner Bean Trench
If your hoping to grow runner beans this season now is the time to prepare their beds. Their large growing size means a dep filled trench filled with manure or compost will keep the growing plant supplied with all the nutrients they need.
Tip - add in kitchen food waste and replace soil allowing it to rot down.
Now is the time to prepare your soil (assuming it is not too wet or frozen). Working on improving the structure and composition now can pay dividends later. You can incorporate as much manure and compost as possible by digging in or leaving it on the top to be drawn in.
Fruit Check List
Inspect fruit supports while you have clear access - once foliage sprouts it can be hard to check.
keep an eye on aphid attacks towards the end of Feb as some fruit leaves start unfurling.
Check apple and pear trees for signs of canker and cut out diseased wood.

Bought ours several years ago. It's done very well having been outside the entire time. Looking for a new base tray though as the metal has now rusted and is coming away.
Excellent product and Good Value for Money. This is the Second Cage that I have purchased and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
This is the second one I have bought. The first one lasted about 7 years before the front part of the frame rotted and collapsed. I.would highly recommend
I needed a shelter for my motorcycle that provided sufficient cover despite my landlord not permitting a garage nor shed. I’d tried many covers which just don’t work for many reasons such as melting onto my exhaust or getting ripped apart in the storms. After a couple of weeks (through Storm Bebet) my new motorcycle home has proven to be a fist class buy.
It’s so much easier than a cover & owing to the space between the cover & bike there’s no risk of damage.
I love it!
Thanks for sending my replacement cover promptly. Will still recommend your company and thanks again for service l have received.
Excellent Service A+++
This is the second folding cover I have had and am very pleased with it, I like the fact that it's a full none contact cover that adds to the protection and security of my equipment,top notch item
Improved quality and fitted to the two year old existing frame like a glove. Perfect!
The order arrived within 2 days, well packaged in a sturdy cardboard box.
All the parts were there referring to the easy to follow list.
The Polytunnel was easy to erect, using the instructions, the steel tubes, just clip together, so much easier that the other makes that use Nuts and Bolts.
The cover fitted the Galvanised steel frame nicely.
It does take a little care making sure that the cover is in the correct position relative to the frame, using the white Velcro straps, cover was fitted into position
I would recommend the Feelgood Polytunnel to anyone.
Double Rabbit Hutch
Better design around the back corners when attaching to frame.The back bottom now has a vent.
Have now covered in tarpaulin to protect from sun.Should last longer. Great product and service.
Perfect just as described 5 stare
Purchased our original cover complete with frame 3 years ago, which in that time has stood up to our great British weather, lots of rain, strong winds and the odd good spells of sun and lots of regular use.
Finding out we could just replace the cover was brilliant as the frame is still doing really well. Since our original purchase it looks like the cover has had some updates for the better, a ventilation covered window to the front with the same originals on the side. Material feels good and went over the frame well, and prefer how the velcro is now in sections round the base instead of all in one like before. Only niggle we have is that the front of the cover is now not lowering as close to the floor as it used to. . But this could be where the material needs to settle after being folded up etc, only time will tell
Fingers crossed this lasts just as long or even longer than the last as they are fab shelters for those without garages
It arrived on time
