THINGS TO DO IN THE GAR­DEN THIS MONTH

Living France - - À La Maison -

Dig up pota­toes that are still in the ground to en­sure they don’t pro­vide a feast for slugs, and to avoid ran­dom plants ap­pear­ing the fol­low­ing year in spots where you don’t want them. Plant bulbs for forc­ing, such as hy­acinth and amaryl­lis, and spring flow­ers in­clud­ing daf­fodils, cro­cuses and out­door hy­acinth. Pro­tect win­ter bras­si­cas such as pur­ple sprout­ing and cab­bages from hun­gry birds by cover­ing them with net­ting. Pick au­tum­n­fruit­ing rasp­ber­ries and black­ber­ries to use in tasty desserts.
