I find there is always plenty to do in winter, it is ayear round pursuit Firstly I prune a lot of shrubs and hedges at this time and there always seem to be weeds growing.
Next gradually throughout winter I cut back the stems on perennials so that it is finished by spring when I know I will be very busy.
Also I find I am always trying to extend my beds by removing more lawn and winter seems to be a good time to do this so that they are ready for spring planting.
When it really is too horrible to go outside I like to look at notes made throughout the year to decide what I will change next year and of course there are plant catalogues to study and plenty of dreaming over a glass or two of single malt about how wonderful things will be next year.
