Gardening is governed by the seasons, and timing tasks correctly for your climate and soil will increase the chance of bumper crops throughout the year.

Although this is the season to catch your breath, remember to consider the year's successes and failures and use your experience to help choose suitable crops for next season.
Sowing and Planting
Hardy crops can be sown as early as midwinter under cover.
If you want to change the garden layout, this is the time to build paths, raised beds, or other features, so they are ready for spring planting.
