Plant straw­ber­ries in free-drain­ing soil. Mound up the soil slightly and side-dress with fer­tiliser.

• Plant as­para­gus crowns in trenches at least 20cm deep. Spread out the spi­dery roots in the base of the trench and pile on com­post, ma­nure and top­soil.

• Take your pick of the new sea­son’s de­cid­u­ous fruit trees and es­tab­lish a back­yard or­chard. Top-notch crop­pers in­clude Dam­son and For­tune plums, Granny Smith ap­ples, Black­boy peaches, Gold­mine nec­tarines and Starkrim­son pears.
