Here follows gardening winter topic's

   By turning over your soil (digging) in the vegetable garden and leaving  it rough the frost and wind will break it down in to a tilth by March.
 
 
Clearing Rose Leaves
  By collecting up dead rose leaves from around the bases  of your roses   and burning them you will reduce the attacks of Black Spot and    Mildew by 60%
 
  Drenching the soil with a mild dilution of Jey’s Fluid even more spores  will be killed off. If gravel or paving runs close to the rose beds drench  these as well.
 
   
Compost Heap Turning
   If your compost heap is a year old or so turn the contents over into a     new heap
 
 
Supports
  Check all supports and tying of trees and climbers
 
  
Snow Clearing
  When clearing snow from paths and drives heap on to  flower and    shrub beds. It is full of plant nutrients and will feed the plants in the    bed
