Harvesting

Most herbs can be harvested as needed through the winter, basil being an exception.

Maintenance:

  • Mulch herbs with compost, pea straw or grass clippings.
  • Don’t be tempted to cut back scraggly herbs yet as this extra growth will protect them from the cold till spring.

Maintenance 

  • Feed brassicas
  • Mound around celery and leeks (this gives them a sweeter taste)
  • Mulch around plants
  • Rake up any left over fruit and leaves
  • Prepare vacant gardens for spring (compost trench, cover crops)
  • Prune deciduous trees removing any crossed branches or diseased branches
  • Fertilise fruit trees
  • Prepare beds for early potatoes
  • Make Whitefly traps
  • Plant deciduous trees
