Get new bulbs into the ground
Plant daffodil and crocus bulbs. Tulips can wait until next month.
Clean out the greenhouse or conservatory
Give the greenhouse/conservatory a thorough clean with detergent and disinfectant to remove any pests.
Prune blackcurrants and gooseberries
Bring tender plants indoors
If you’ve got tender plants, bring them indoors before they get killed by the frost. Choose a light, frost-free place such as a greenhouse or cold frame. Keep them on the dry side during the winter, so they don’t put on much growth.
Lift final maincrop potatoes
If you haven’t done so already, lift all your maincrop potatoes on a dry day and store in bags in a cool dark place. Don’t leave them any longer or the slugs will find them.
