  • Prune gooseberry bushes to open up the centre of the bush to improve air circulation
  • Chit seed potatoes in trays in a bright, frost-free position
  • Plant bare-root fruit trees before they start growing in March
  • Sow seed of broad beans, carrots, hardy peas and parsnips outside in soil warmed by cloches
