It's time to get moving stuff around in the garden - and that should get
everything well established, given all the rain.
See those small weeds? Get them out of their beds - it's easy to do
while they're still young.
Any leaves left on the lawn, or on perennials, rake off ... they will be
very wet and solid.
It is still TOO EARLY to plant a lot of annual flowers and veggies
Starting seeds inside now though is great and, by the time they are
ready for outside planting, the frosts (maybe) should have gone.
Tomatoes, peppers and delicate herbs are in the garden centres ... but,
keep them protected!

Also, harden off any other material that has come directly from a
greenhouse although pansies will tolerate a lot of frost -10 and even
Geraniums, and stocks ... be careful and they will need night
The GROUND needs to be warm to get things going (especially
transplanting) at about 12 C earth temperature.
Cold weather veggies, such as broad beans, lettuce and peas however, can
be put in ... when the ground is nicely workable.
Spring is here and time for planting (almost) ... don't rush it as the
nights are still cold.
