Sea­sonal tasks

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - 2017 GARDENING CALENDAR -

Pro­tect cit­rus trees from Jack Frost’s icy fin­gers. Spray with or­ganic wax-based liq­uid frost cloth (ap­ply ev­ery 6-8 weeks) or cover with loosely draped poly­eth­yl­ene.

• Cover your com­post heap with a plas­tic tar­pau­lin or carpet of­f­cuts to keep the rain off. Cold, wet com­post soon stops break­ing down.

• Slip­pery when wet? Ap­ply moss and mould killer to tim­ber decks and paved pa­tios.
