Garden Maintenance: Lungworts (Pulmonaria)

Early-flowering ground cover like lungworts (Pulmonaria) can be freshened up by pruning spent flower stems. If the leaves get a bit of mold on them, you can cut them back and they will also regrow. 

Garden Maintenance: Tying in roses

Climbing and rambling roses should be tied in, training shoots as near as horizontal as possible. Training rose mainshoots horizontally causes more sideshoots to develop, producing more flowers
