■ Build good com­post­ing and get your worm farm go­ing.

■ Mulch the gar­den now so it will be break­ing down even bet­ter over the sum­mer.

■ Think about get­ting your late spring/sum­mer ve­g­ies into the gar­den.

■ Try sow­ing some seeds if you’ve been mainly a seedling grower. Grow­ing ve­g­ies from seeds this year will re­veal how easy and cheap it is.

■ Think about plant­ing some herb pots. If you’re really in to pars­ley and basil, plant big bunches rather than a few here or there. A good basil crop will make a heap of pesto.

■ Find an area to plant a rose­mary hedge so you can grow enough to give friends and fam­ily and share with neigh­bours.
