Fruit and veg job checklist

18 - 24 January 2016

It's time to...

  • Prune out the oldest stems from blackcurrants to encourage new shoots
  • Check crops that are in store and discard any showing signs of rot
  • Fork compost into the soil and clear old crops from the veg plot
  • Cover fruit trees and bushes with netting to prevent hungry bullfinches eating blossom buds
  • Sow the following crops under cloches during January and early February: broad beans, hardy peas, spinach, carrots and onions
