Things to do this week

* GOOD garden hygiene helps greatly in the prevention of disease carry-over from one year to the next so remove yellowing leaves from any crops remaining and rake up fallen leaves.

* Slugs are a problem year round so slug control remains a necessity (though actual slug patrols probably don't). It's particularly important to keep them in check in the polytunnel or greenhouse.

* Mice can be a problem at this time of the year and crops sown in the ground like broad beans, garlic etc can be vulnerable. Protect them under cloches.
