1Vegetables – tidy up winter brassica crops by pulling off yellowing older leaves. Check for infestations of cabbage whitefly, particularly on older leaves – remove and destroy. Snap leaves over developing cauliflower curds to prevent frost damage. Lift root crops and store them in dry compost in a frost free environment in case the ground freezes hard.

2Fruit – remove netting from fruit cages in case it snows. Complete the pruning of apples and pears. Mulch around the bases of bush, cane and top fruit to reduce frost damage over the coming months.
