  • Plant leek and onion after applying some lime or dolomite
  • Plant (bare-rooted) fruit trees, berry canes and grapes, and move fruit trees if needed
  • Spread compost and manure around fruit trees and berries
  • Divide and replant clumps of chives and other perennial onions, rhubarb and mint
  • Thoroughly clean out your hothouse and give it a good airing to get rid of hibernating pests
