HIT by snow and frost this week? Avoid walk­ing on snowy lawns as this will cause dam­age. Brush ex­cess snow off branches, hedges and green­houses. Frost may have black­ened some plants – you can re­move the dam­age in spring. Newly planted shrubs can lift up dur­ing hard frosts so firm gen­tly back in.

PINCH out the tops of au­tumn planted wall­flow­ers to cre­ate stronger flow­er­ing plants.

PEACHES and apri­cots grown against a fence or wall can be given some pro­tec­tion against peach leaf curl by erect­ing a rain shel­ter made of plas­tic. It should cover the top of the tree but al­low ac­cess for pol­li­nat­ing through the open side ends. Keep in place un­til mid-May.
