The flower garden

Prune rambling and climbing roses.

Cut down annuals and take to the compost bin.

Prune acer now to avoid stems from bleeding once the sap rises in the spring.

The kitchen garden

Mushrooms are growing at this time of year. Kits can be purchased.

Lift chicory roots to force.

Harvest celeriac and winter cabbage as required.

The greenhouse

Line with bubble wrap to provide insulation.

The pond


Check stored fruit and vegetables for rotting.

Store hoses and sprinklers in a frost free shed.

Protect ceramic and glazed pots from the frost. Raise on feet to assist drainage.

Wrap insulation around outside taps.

Stop feeding house plants as light and growth diminishes.

Gather fallen leaves to make leaf mould.

Replenish bird feeders.
