WEEK 1

You need to act early when it comes to bindis. Check your grass now and re­move any fine fur-like leaves (that will later flower and give you grief) or use a se­lec­tive weed­i­cide.

WEEK 2

Early spring is the best time to do your an­nual in­door plant re­pot­ting. Give your plants a good re­boot – use Aus­tralian pre­mium pot­ting mix and wa­ter in with seaweed so­lu­tion.

WEEK 3

As fruit trees fin­ish flow­er­ing, give them a few hand­fuls of blood and bone. Net de­vel­op­ing fruit to pro­tect from birds and bats.

WEEK 4

Spring is the best time to plant hedges and screening shrubs, so if you’re want­ing some pri­vacy from the neigh­bours, now is a great time.
