WHAT TO DO IN THE GAR­DEN THIS MONTH

IN THE VEGIE PATCH

Homes+ (Australia) - - MY BACKYARD -

WEEK 1

Pro­tect ve­g­ies from cold winds with a hedge or screen­ing plant on the south or west of your patch.

WEEK 2

Worm farms turn your kitchen scraps into use­ful plant food for your ve­g­ies – great if you don’t have room for a com­post heap.

WEEK 3

Paths in the patch keep feet dry and mud-free. Top up paths with a per­me­able sur­face like stones or peb­bles that al­lows wa­ter to drain.

WEEK 4

Rainy day? When you can’t tend the gar­den, cre­ate a tiled mo­saic piece to per­son­alise and beau­tify it!

Gar­den­ing ex­pert Dale Vine shares his must-do list for July.
