Sue Bradley re­veals what to do in the gar­den this month, plus our blog­ger’s sea­sonal col­umn

1 Plant bare-rooted de­cid­u­ous trees, shrubs and peren­ni­als while they are in their win­ter dor­mancy. Win­ter is also a good time to move ex­ist­ing plants to new sites, but leave ev­er­greens in place. 2 Dig up leeks and other root veg­eta­bles and pick sprouts and cab­bages as re­quired. 3 Prune ap­ple and pear trees grow­ing in the open ground to en­cour­age a crop of qual­ity fruit next au­tumn. 4 Make sure outdoor taps are pro­tected with in­su­la­tion so that they don’t freeze.
