WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK.

Shorten hybrid tea roses and floribundas to reduce the damage from windrock.

Cut back a third of the summer's growth on hardy fuchsias, leaving bare stems as protection over the winter.

Complete the pruning of bush fruits as soon as practicable, leave late-fruiting raspberries until February.

If carrying out late turfing, protect the ground to be worked on.

If you intend to save leek bulbils, cut the heads before there are hard frosts.

When staking trees, place the stake on the side which gets the prevailing wind, so the stem is blown away from the stake.

Increase stocks of winter jasmin, Jasminum nudiflorum, by taking cuttings now and inserting them in a cold frame.

After putting this year's lifted dahlias away for the winter, check next year's requirements and order fresh stock.

Have a good weeding session to catch as many as you can before they start growing again in spring.
