  • Pre-warm the beds where you are going to plant early potatoes with black plastic sheet and/or cloches
  • Dig in the tougher green manures so they will have died, broken down and incorporated by the time you want to sow and plant or
  • Put down geo-textiles on top of green manures or weed infested soil
  • If your soil is dryish and not frozen plant onion, shallots and garlic sets
  • Dust soot or dark compost onto, raked and weeded, asparagus beds for earlier crops
