We are now in the middle of Autumn, my favourite time of the year. Finally the summer heat has passed and we can get stuck into a few jobs in the garden without feeling like we’re going to pass out!
Here is the Top 20 things to do in April to keep you busy. Happy Gardening.
1. Remove any pest affected fruit that isn’t edible and discard in the rubbish rather than compost so that you don’t carry unwanted bugs into the next season. Look for mummified fruit and discard. Sometimes they can carry disease harbouring spores.
2. You will likely have lots of leaves from Autumn trees soon, so if your compost bins are ready, take the compost out and dig it into your veggie and garden beds. If you’d like to learn how to create great compost, watch Episode 4 of our Free Veggie Classes that talks about soil health, composting, testing the pH and crop rotation.
