- Cut back shrubs such as Cornus and Salix cultivars (grown for their colourful winter stems) down to their bases.
- Cut back the old foliage from ornamental grasses before growth begins - clip them to within a few centimetres of the ground.
- Prune overwintered fuchsias back to one or two buds on each shoot.
- Prune winter flowering shrubs such as Mahonia and Viburnum x bodnantense after their colourful display has finished.
- Trim winter-flowering heathers as the flowers disappear, to prevent the plants becoming leggy.
- Remove any faded flowers from your winter pansies to stop them setting seed.
- Lift and divide snowdrops still 'in the green' if you want to move them or create more plants.
- If you need to move deciduous trees or shrubs, now is the time to do it provided the soil is not frozen or waterlogged.
