Inside your house you may like to start your tomatoes in trays, this will allow you to have a very large plant ready to plant out after the frosts.

Outside you should cut down and dig in any remaining green manure crops. Or simply chop and drop them and leave them as a mulch.

Place your cloches, cold frames or tiny plastic tunnels in your garden now and leave them for 3 weeks to warm the soil before planting into them.


Plant your fruit trees and berry bushes as they arrive into well dug, well composted soil. Avoid letting the trees fruit for the first season, this will ensure they develop a good root system and they will give bigger, better crops in years to come.

For further reading, I really recommend all of these books. I own every one of them and they are amazing resources!
