Berries

If the soil isn’t wet or waterlogged, then you can easily grow a variety of berries in the winter months.

Raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries can all be grown now.

Berries also don’t tend to get seriously damaged by first but new growth can be hindered by winter conditions so pruning damaged parts of the plant is essential.

Ms Barrigan recommends choosing a cultivar that blooms later in spring.

Stone fruit trees

You may have noticed some supermarkets selling fruit trees already, and that’s because the “best time” to plant stone fruit is in winter, according to Ms Barrigan.

This means fruits such as apricots, peaches and nectarines will grow anywhere between late November- early March before they bloom in late spring.

The gardening expert said these fruits are also self-pollinating which means you only need one tree.
