Lily-of-the-valley (Convallaria) can be dug up, potted and forced in the greenhouse at this time of year. Rhizomes that are kept in a frost-free greenhouse over winter will stay in active growth, but given a little heat, they will be ready to flower shortly after replanting in the garden next spring.
2Take out supports
Remove stakes and other supports as final late-flowering herbaceous plants die down for the winter.
3Dig up perennial weeds
Now can be a good time to dig up perennial weeds with long tap roots, such as dandelions and mallow, from newly cultivated areas.
4Check for grey mould
Grey mould or Botrytis can be problematic in wet weather – watch out for signs.
5Don’t let your lawn get waterlogged
Watch your lawn for signs of waterlogging, as the weather gets wetter. You may be able to remedy this with some maintenance – either now, or next spring.
