1 Plant tulip bulbs to en­sure a won­der­ful spring dis­play.

2 Clear up fallen leaves and pile them up – in a heap, within a wire net­ting cage or black plas­tic bags – and leave them for a cou­ple of years to form leaf mould, which is great for im­prov­ing the struc­ture of the soil.

3 Check rose bushes and prune back any that are par­tic­u­larly leggy to avoid dam­age from wind rock over the com­ing months.
