IN­SU­LATE OUT­DOOR TAPS Use a pur­pose-made cover or sev­eral lay­ers of bub­ble wrap se­cured in place with string or an elas­tic band. TIDY ROSE LEAVES Clear away fallen rose leaves be­cause they can har­bour the fun­gal dis­ease blackspot. Com­post­ing them can spread the spores, so put them in your coun­cil green waste. CLEAR AN­NUAL PLANT­INGS Clear the last an­nual plant­ings from borders and con­tain­ers and add to the com­post heap.

MOW AND EDGE LAWN If it’s been a mild au­tumn, give the lawn a mow and edge it. The clean lines and neat grass will pro­vide your gar­den with a crisp fin­ish right through the win­ter months. STORE SEEDS Pick dry seed­heads and store in pa­per bags.
