When the weather holds, like it did on New Year's Eve 2018, you can perform easy clean-up tasks in your garden. You can rake up any remaining leafiness and compost it, use it to cover your perennial beds or put it in green waste.
Weeding is also nice to do when the soil is easily workable. Cultivate your beds and rake up any debris.
