This month in your garden

Spring is in full swing - the weather is warming up, and now is a great time to get your garden ready. Prepare your garden beds now. Add compost and sheep pellets to help improve your soil structure, encourage worms, and add nutrients.
Keep picking your Silverbeet, radish & lettuce. Your mustard greens, NZ spinach and peas should be ready to start eating now too. Also make most of your Spinach as it is likely the last month you can harvest for the year.
October is the time of year to get all your flowers planted - brighten up the area with sunflowers, veronica, beginia, carnation or marigolds. Still be wary of frosts in cold areas. Planting flowers in the vegetable garden is also great for encouraging bees to pollinate vegetables like tomatoes.
There's a lot to plant this month – citrus fruits like lemons, oranges and grapefruit in the warmer areas where frosts are no longer an issue. Gooseberries, blueberries, boysenberries, blackberries, kiwifruit and fejoas can also be planted. Make sure they get plenty of sun and shelter from strong winds.
To protect edible seedlings from Slugs and Snails use Quash Slug Pellets or use Slug and Snail Easy Traps.
This is a guide only. For more in depth information please visit your local gardening centre.
