Rootcrops

If you live in a mild area and left carrots, beetroot and potatoes in the soil, lift them now. Only store those roots that are healthy and without rots or pest presence. Parsnips should be left in the ground as they taste better once frosted.

Plant of the Week: Conifers

Plant of the Week: Conifers

There are few groups of trees more versatile, colourful and well-behaved than conifers. They have an ancient history, need little maintenance and you're sure to find one that's a perfect fit for your garden. Yet one variety has tarnished the name of all the rest by outgrowing its welcome and generally making a nuisance of itself. We're talking the much-hated hedging plant, Leylandii cypress, scourge of neighbourhood relations everywhere.

Take no notice: conifers are the canny gardener's best-kept secret. Get to know the likes of brilliant blue Korean fir (Abies koreana), lush and hummocky Pinus mugo or steely blue juniper 'Blue Star' and you're sure to change your mind.
