What to do now

Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs Turvey Allotments
  • At this stage, though it might seem like a chore, the vegetable garden needs to be tidied up and old crops removed.
  • Potatoes, carrots and swede turnips can be stored in suitable conditions — a cool shed with an earthen or concrete floor, or an outdoor pit, is ideal but take precautions against rodents.
  • Plant fruit trees and bushes, and these are available now in garden centres
Greenhouse and House Plants
  • Remove old plants and tidy up all greenhouse debris and weeds to leave it neat and clean.
  • Water sparingly and check for pests.
  • House plants should not be fed until growth begins next year and watering should be just sufficient to keep the compost just moist, never wet.
  • Do not stand plants in saucers of water and remove dust from the leaves.
