Get Healthy - jobs for the winter

Here is a small list of jobs that you could do in your garden to get it in shape for the coming spring. Prune your apple and pear trees and your late raspberries and grape vines, ventilate greenhouses on nice sunny days. Start to force the rhubarb and plan the vegetable rotation for the coming season. Chit potatoes, divide snowdrop bulbs. Prepare the vegetable seed beds and sow some under cover. Start double digging and top dress beds with manure and let the heavy rain wash it through. Mulch apple trees, and finally don’t forget to feed the birds!
