Find out what to main­tain, sow and har­vest this month.

WEEK 1

Pre­pare plant­ing holes Loosen the soil and add or­ganic ma­nure and pea straw to plant rose or fruit trees at the end of win­ter.

WEEK 2

Gift for Mum Dy­namic lifter (chook poo) is not the nicest thing. For Mother’s Day, I’ll throw some around Mum’s gar­den for her so she won’t need to get smelly.

WEEK 3

Thin­ner mulch You might think a thick layer of mulch pro­tects plants from the cold, but less will al­low any sun to pen­e­trate the soil.

WEEK 4

Re­duce wa­ter­ing Re­pro­gram au­to­mated wa­ter­ing sys­tems: change bat­ter­ies, flush out and re­duce wa­ter­ing days and du­ra­tion.
