Improve Soil Quality
Improve and condition soil by digging it over with rotted leaves and/or farmyard manure. This will put nutrients back into the soil and replace the goodness that your plants will have used up during the year.
Check Greenhouse Heating
Make sure greenhouse heaters are working properly if you have them.
Check your winter protection structures are still in place.
Make sure greenhouses are fully insulated if you're overwintering plants that aren't very hardy.
Prune Apple Trees
Prune apple and pear trees if you have not done so already.
Brush heavy snow (if applicable) from hedges to avoid damage.
Harvest Winter Vegetables
Harvest leeks, parsnips, winter cabbage, sprouts and other root crops.
Sow: Basil, dill, chives and parsley indoors on your window sill for winter use. Winter hardy salad leaves can also be sown under cover.
