Sow and plant

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

Plant cer­ti­fied virus-free seed pota­toes in trenches and mound up the soil. New sea­son’s pota­toes such as Jersey Benne and Cliff Kid­ney can be planted 40cm apart but main crop­pers such as Agria or Sum­mer De­light need 60-80cm each. Note: too much com­post causes scabby skins.

• Sow beet­root, car­rots, co­rian­der and Florence fen­nel.

• Keep sow­ing cap­sicums, chill­ies, egg­plants and toma­toes in pots in­doors.
