This month in your garden

Autumn is here which means it’s a great time to get your spring bulbs in, plant trees and shrubs and get your veggie garden sorted out so that you can keep yourself fed during our cool wet winter.
As the crops from your summer veggies begins to tail off it’s worth replacing them with plants that will go right through the winter. Direct sow carrots and parsnip straight into the garden, and start planting out seedlings or sowing seeds in trays for kale, cabbages, broccoli, coriander, parsley, lettuce, broad beans and beetroot.
In Auckland we are lucky that there are lots of plants that flower right through winter. Polyanthus and Primula look gorgeous, as do Pansy, Viola, and Calendula whose flowers look stunning and can even be added to salads. But don’t forget to plant your spring bulbs now to ensure that the end of winter is announced in a stunning fashion.
Feed fruit trees with Kings Slow-Release Fruit and Citrus Fertiliser or for an organic option Aquaticus Supernatural. Sprinkle Epsom Salt around citrus trees with yellowing leaves. And don’t forget, it’s a great time to plant citrus and begin planning your orchard so you’re ready when deciduous fruit trees come in around June-July.
Many summer veggies are starting to look a little worse for wear, but at this point there isn’t much point in spraying them. Leave them till they stop producing and then whip them out and dispose of them carefully. Protect new seedlings or established plants from Slugs and Snails using the pet and child safe option, Quash.
This is a guide only. For more in depth information please visit your local Kings Plant Barn.
