Using nematodes in winter
In winter some soil-based pests will still be active in greenhouses and polytunnels
(eg leatherjackets and slugs and even possibly vine weevil)
If you see any sign of plant damage, and the soil is 5 to 10 degrees then you can still treat these bugs with nematodes.
However if you are using nematodes outside wait until March or April when soil is warmer.

Are your seedlings being munched?
Early sowings are a great idea, but if they are in the compost a long time then
algae and liverwort form a crust on the surface, and attract flies. Sciarid fly
larvae are a real pest in our propagation area and we treat regularily with predators....

Does your green house or conservatory need a clean down?
Spider mite, scale and mealybug can all overwinter in protected spaces. It is worthwhile
washing down your plants with a mild horticultural soap so that everything is ready
for the spring growth.
