WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK

Bath Chronicle - - YOUR GARDEN -

■ IT’S not too late to pro­tect plants from cold weather so make sure any ten­der plants are ei­ther in­doors in the con­ser­va­tory or green­house, or wrapped up out­side with some hes­sian or hor­ti­cul­tural fleece, in­set. ■ If you’re feel­ing en­er­getic you could do a bit of prun­ing. Wis­te­ria, which has thrown out long whippy stems, can be clipped back to about two or three buds. ■ IT’S a good idea to check on dahlia and be­go­nia tu­bers that you are over­win­ter­ing. Re­move any­thing rot­ten as that can spread to the oth­ers. ■ sum­mer may be a long way off but you could now start sweet peas from seed. If you sowed in au­tumn, you could be pot­ting them on now.
