December
Prune
Winter prune large fruit trees to control their shape and size, and to increase their productivity


Sow or Plant
Plant thornless blackberries, such as 'Loch Ness', for easy pickings of large, sweet, juicy fruits


Prepare
Start to plan next year's crops and order seeds

Vegetables
Place straw around the base of parsnips to prevent the soil freezing, which can make harvesting difficult




Sow


Fruit
Plant fruit trees trained as cordons, fans or espaliers to make good use of limited space
Pot up a clump of rhubarb and place under a large bin to force an early crop of sweet stems
Polytunnel
Scuba diving is an art, not a sport
