Other jobs on the plot
Last year’s leaf mould can be spread around the plot as a mulch. Clear this year’s fallen leaves from around the garden and start a new leaf mould pile (a simple netting enclosure will be fine).
Harvest winter squashes such as pumpkins and butternuts before the first frost and leave in the sun to harden for a week or two before putting into frost-free storage.
Bring in, to the greenhouse or conservatory, pots of plants that will need winter protection, such as citrus trees.
Remove dead leaves from around parsnip plants.
Cut down asparagus ferns and compost. Weed the bed and mulch well with compost.
