Re­move leaves

Gardeners' World - - What To Do Now -

As nat­u­ral light lev­els drop, let in as much light as pos­si­ble by reg­u­larly clear­ing leaves and de­bris from the green­house roof. A long-han­dled broom will do the trick − brush them down from the ridge to­wards the gut­ter. Wear gloves to run your hands along the length of the gut­ter, scoop­ing out the leaves as you go. Make sure leaves don’t block the down pipes that fill wa­ter butts. Blast a hosepipe down them to be sure and col­lect any de­bris that falls into the butt.

Clear out gutters to en­sure a free flow of rain­wa­ter
