It's time to...

  • Top up fuel tank of paraffin heater every evening
  • Bring potted hyacinths and bulbs under cover to bloom
  • Make a sowing plan for raising greenhouse crops and bedding plants, and order seeds
  • Bring potted peaches under cover to prevent an attack of leaf curl
  • Water pot plants sparingly and avoid wetting foliage. Never leave plants standing in water
  • Regularly pick off faded leaves and flowers to avoid grey mould (botrytis) developing
