THINGS TO DO IN THE GARDEN THIS MONTH
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.
