  1. Start to tidy up borders and beds, cutting back old foliage and tackling early weeds
  2. Mulch perennial veg such as asparagus and artichokes
  3. Lift and divide snowdrops ‘in the green’
  4. Start sowing seeds under cover (either in a poly/ greenhouse, or on a bright windowsill): broad beans, peas, parsnips, leeks and carrots.
  5. ‘Chit’ early potatoes ready for planting next month.  See our ‘How To’ guide on potatoes for more details on planting potatoes.
