Norfolk - - GARDEN GUIDE -

Mist house­plants to raise hu­mid­ity caused by dry air from cen­tral heat­ing.

Pro­tect any vul­ner­a­ble plants from cold winds with fleece or a tem­po­rary wind break.

Ap­ple and pear trees can be pruned now. Re­move any dead or dis­eased branches then prune to give the tree an open cen­tre re­duc­ing the long­est branches by around one third.

Now is a good time to clean out wa­ter butts ready for the sea­son ahead.

Dig up and pot some mint roots to force some early shoots.
