March in the Garden

March is a tricky time to be planting vegetables as we move from a hot summer to autumn. We have all noticed that the days are getting shorter and that means that summer is slowly winding down. We can expect cooler evenings, misty mornings and bigger temperature fluctuations. Im sure some of us are longing for some cooler days by now!

Here are a few jobs to keep you busy in the garden over the weekend

  • Its time to pull out those summer crops that have stopped producing
  • A good application of fertiliser will go a long way as the soil has taken a knock over the hot months.
  • Prepare new beds and dig in some compost and additional bone meal to help the winter seedlings take root.
  • Collect seeds from those plants that have gone to seed & save for future harvests.
  • Most importantly! Look out for our new Seriously Easy Peasy gardening program which starts this month!

  • Beetroot
