This month in your garden

The wetness of winter is hopefully an unpleasant memory now that spring is in full swing, and it’s a great time for gardening. Now is the time to plant veggies like tomatoes, capsicums, beans, eggplants, and courgettes; or a dizzying array of annual and perennial flowers like petunias, marigolds, delphiniums and lavender.
As it gets warmer it is worth planting some lettuce, rocket, coriander, and parsley in part shade as this will help protect them from the summer sun and reduce bolting. It is also a perfect time to plant tomatoes. Basil is a great companion plant for tomatoes and is a brilliant addition to your salads.
Now can be an exciting time of year in the flower garden. Whether you want to create a cottage garden full of delphiniums, foxgloves, lavender, and petunias, or mass plant annual petunias, marigolds and/or snapdragons, there are undoubtedly plants that will suit you.
If you haven’t already, now is a good time to sprinkle a heaped spoonful of Epsom salts around your citrus plants (or two spoonfuls if the leaves have gone yellow). Regular feeding with either a slow release citrus fertilizer or an organic liquid feed (such as Aquaticus) will help ensure that you get a good crop of citrus.
To protect edible seedlings from Slugs use Quash Slug Pellets or use Slug and Snail Easy Traps. Planting nasturtiums can distract the white butterfly and make them less likely to lay their eggs on your greens. If they do become a problem, try spraying with Organic Caterpillar Killer. It is best sprayed in the evening and no withholding period is required.
This is a guide only. For more in depth information please visit your local Kings Plant Barn.
