WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK ...

. Insulate containers to reduce the risk of roots freezing.

. Tackle overgrown deciduous hedging, pruning it back hard to encourage new growth next season. Don''t trim evergreen hedges now.. Plant bare-root and containergrown roses.

. Apply a bulky organic mulch around the base of trees, shrubs and climbers.

. Plant tulips, lilies and hyacinths in beds, borders and containers.. Cut back the top growth on ornamental grasses that don''t look attractive at this time of year.

. Thin out canes on established bamboos.

. Clear fallen leaves from the lawn, beds and borders.

. Brush toadstools off the lawn using a broom.

. Protect less hardy bulbs such as nerines and agapanthus by mulching.
