Homes+ (Australia) - - GARDEN ADVICE AND PLANNER -

WEEK 1

Grow­ing peas or broad beans? If you can’t wait for the har­vest, snip off the young shoots to eat. They’re great in stir fries.

WEEK 2

Grow ed­i­ble flow­ers such as vi­ola, salvia, cal­en­dula, nas­tur­tium and laven­der for ex­tra-pretty gar­nishes.

WEEK 3

Try dis­tract­ing aphids with a mag­net plant (try chives) to make them eas­ier to kill and at­tract them away from the other edi­bles.

WEEK 4

Plant some new pota­toes for delicious homegrown baby spuds or chats for Christ­mas lunch.
