What to Do this Week
■ Cover your veg patch with polythene to warm it up so you can sow veg early. You can start sowing some veg indoors such as broad beans.
■ In the veg garden, protect your cabbage plants from pigeons with netting or fleece (pictured). Remove any yellow leaves as these are dead and may carry disease or
■ Don’t walk on your lawns if frosty as this will damage them.
■ Sow begonia, lobelia and salvia seeds in a heated propagator.
■ Get your greenhouse ready for the growing season. Wash windows inside and out to maximise light levels. Tidy up and wash out seed trays and pots.
