IN THE VEGIE PATCH

Homes+ (Australia) - - MY BACKYARD -

WEEK 1

De­coy plants Nas­tur­tium flow­ers and leaves are edi­ble, so aphids, slugs and cater­pil­lars love them. Add them as de­coys be­tween ve­g­ies.

WEEK 2

Vegie gar­den­ing is not only re­ward­ing – it’s fun! It can be en­joyed by the whole fam­ily.

WEEK 3

Pas­sion­fruit prob­lems Plant a non-grafted vine, which is less likely to pro­duce un­wanted suck­ers.

WEEK 4

Bar­rels, pots and bas­kets Plant ve­g­ies in pots so you can re­po­si­tion in or­der to fol­low the sun.
