The soft, tender new growth that is developing on just about everything is especially prone to cold damage. You may also find that weather-damage caused over the last couple of months also becomes more obvious, now that it is surrounded by lush new growth. Continue to plant main-crop seed potatoes. Plant out any remaining greenhouse tomatoes or pepper plants now, either into their final pots or planters or in to the greenhouse border soil. If you have a conservatory or sunny porch, this too could be a good home for a pepper or tomato plant! Make more successional sowings of vegetable and herb seeds direct in to garden soil, watering well.
This is usually the latest you can leave it if you want to order in any garden-ready vegetable plants, so make sure that you do this now as it can be a great way to make up for lost time or catch up on the seed-sowing you never quite managed to do! Symptoms vary a lot from plant to plant, but discoloration — especially the development of dark brown or black areas or entire leaves — and dieback are very common. Some of the tougher plants may even be damaged, and on these you may see a peculiar bagginess beneath the leaf, almost as if the outermost layer of the leaf is too big for the leaf itself, and often combined with some distortion.
Check weather forecasts regularly and, using your local knowledge as well, provided that you can be pretty confident that the worst of the weather is definitely over, prune out damaged areas now. Regularly hand-weed or hoe around vegetable seedlings that are starting to come up — weeds create a lot of competition for food and moisture and can cause serious setbacks to seedlings. Aphids Greenfly, blackfly and just about every conceivable colour of aphid are likely to be doing a lot of damage this month.
Like most other pests, they are especially fond of soft, succulent plant foliage; they feed by sucking plant sap and may cause a range of symptoms including yellowing, distortion especially puckering , dieback and general stunting. Sometimes the honey dew attracts black mould growth, and this sooty mould covers the plants too. Aphids may also spread plant viruses as they feed and move from plant to plant — so, all in all, you can see why they may need to be controlled!
Handsquashing, jetting them off sturdier plants with a strong blast of water or, if necessary, a treatment with plant oil may work. Plant oil is available from garden centres, websites and catalogues, as are soft soaps or soft soap solution, which all work well. I also try to encourage aphid-feeding birds into the area by hanging up bird feeders close by.

In , mountain climber Aron Ralston was descending a narrow canyon in Utah when a boulder slipped and trapped his right hand against a rock face. Having tried unsuccessfully for three days to pull his arm free, he decided to amputate the lower part of his forearm with the small blade of his pocketknife, but it was too blunt to cut through bone. Becoming delirious and reduced to drinking his own urine by day five, he hit upon the idea of breaking the bones in his arm by snapping them between the boulder and the rock face, which he duly did.
