DI­VIDE PEREN­NI­ALS Di­vide spring-flow­er­ing herba­ceous peren­ni­als, such as hardy gera­ni­ums and lady’s man­tle (al­chemilla), now to give their roots time to es­tab­lish be­fore the weather turns cold. START PLANT­ING DAF­FODILS Daf­fodil bulbs need longer in the ground than tulips so plant these over the next few weeks for a long dis­play of spring flow­ers.

SOW HARDY WIN­TER SALAD

LEAVES Sow rocket, spinach, let­tuce ‘Win­ter Den­sity’ and ‘Mar­vel of Four Sea­sons’ in pots un­der cover or in a spot where you can pop a cloche over them. See Gourmet Grower, p75

PLANT WIN­TER BULB DIS­PLAYS

Plant spe­cially treated hy­acinth and daf­fodil bulbs such as ‘Paper Whites’ and ‘Grande Soleil d’Or’ over the com­ing weeks for an in­door Christ­mas dis­play.
