The site needs to be prepared to receive the plant at the right time of the year. The soil should be cultivated to produce the appropriate structure and tilth and base dressings of fertilizers applied. Plants should not go into the ground when it is dry, waterlogged or frozen. After sowing or planting out, care has to be taken particularly with regard to watering and weed control, also with protection from pests and diseases.

Maintenance activity is ongoing (as anyone who looks after a garden will know). There are many things to do almost every month of the year to keep the planting in good order, including:
  • mowing turf
  • irrigation/watering
  • feeding
  • hedge cutting, clipping topiary
  • pruning trees and shrubs
  • weeds, pest and disease control
  • staking
  • dead heading
  • dividing perennials.
