• Com­pile a wish-list of flavour­some fruit trees to buy in win­ter by taste-test­ing fruit at your lo­cal farm­ers mar­ket now. Ap­ples, apri­cots, nec­tarines, peaches, pears and plums are all in sea­son.

• Pickle and pre­serve ex­cess fruit and veges, or freeze in 500g por­tions to deal with later in the year.

• Prune stone­fruit trees as soon as you’ve picked the last fruit.
