|Month by Month Tips|
Despite the reduced hours of daylight this month, there is a sense of excitement as one year comes to an end and a new one is about to begin. It’s a good opportunity to batten down the hatches and relax by the fire as you peruse your seed catalogues and dream of how next year’s growing season could be even better than this year’s.
Take advantage of the potential wet winter ahead by installing guttering on your shed and greenhouse, and introducing lots of water butts to store the rainwater.
DIGGING AND WEEDING
Take advantage of dry spells by digging over the soil and removing any perennial weed root
Now is a good opportunity to redesign the structure of your allotment. Consider making raised
beds, seating areas, pathways, compost heaps, training structures, and arches.
Broad bean plants, overwintering onions, winter lettuces, shallots, and garlic can be planted
Check that tree ties aren’t too tight around the trunks of fruit trees and that posts and other supports haven’t rotted.
SEEDTRAYS AND POTS
Give all your seedtrays and pots a good clean in preparation for sowing in spring.
Carrots, beetroot, and turnips should be lifted out of the ground and stored. Parsnips can be left in the ground and harvested as required
