I go out and do a bit of tree/bush surgery in winter otherwise I leave it alone. I'd get compacted wet soil, I'd walk on the bulbs as they come through and get I'd cold.
I do go out every day and look around; see what buds are swelling, if the snowdrops are through (they are), feed the birds, paddle in the flooded parts of the garden. But that will do.
