If anyone is interested, BBC Gardeners World has a good website;  and the Gardeners' World magazine gives free access to a “What to do now” section. This is a week by week breakdown of things to do for fruit, flowers, veg, in the greenhouse and in the garden in general. There is also a “How to …” section.
