What to plant in November

If you haven’t already given into temptation then November is the month to plant up your Summer veggies. Dig in plenty of compost or cow manure and check your irrigation to make sure you are ready to go. You can add a little potash to promote more flowers and fruit and have some straw or lucerne on hand to top up your mulch levels as your babies grow.

You can also safely plant Citrus now and keep an eye out for codling moth on your apples and pears, Pear and Cherry slug on your cherries and pears and pull off any leaves on Peaches and Nectarines affected by leaf curl.

If you get out there now and set up your garden for the Summer months and you will reap the rewards for months to come.
