CATCH UP WITH KEITH

EDP Norfolk - - Garden Guide -

If not al­ready done dahlia tu­bers should be now care­fully lifted, re­mov­ing any dead fo­liage be­fore stor­ing them in just damp com­post.

Re­move any fallen leaves from gar­den ponds along with any dead or rot­ting fo­liage from aquatic plants.

Thor­oughly check ten­der plants for pests and dis­eases and treat ac­cord­ingly be­fore bring­ing them in for the win­ter.

Check bon­fires be­fore they are lit for any hi­ber­nat­ing or sheltering wildlife.

Parsnips can be lifted af­ter the first frosts which will give them a bet­ter flavour.
