  • Plant cold-stored potato tubers in large tubs in a greenhouse or cool porch, for harvesting at Christmas
  • Pour water over the greenhouse floor every morning during hot weather to increase humidity
  • Plant up pots with 'Paper White' narcissus bulbs for fragrant indoor displays this Christmas

  • Start watering dormant cyclamen to bring them back into growth after their summer rest
  • Plant flowering bulbs, such as nerines, lachenalia and veltheimia in pots indoors, for autumn and winter colour

  • Harvest tomatoes, cucumbers and chillies regularly to encourage more fruits to form
