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

Spring weather is no­to­ri­ously un­set­tled. Don’t rush to plant sum­mer-lov­ing seedlings of basil, beans, cap­sicums, cu­cum­bers, toma­toes, mel­ons or zuc­chini out­doors just yet. They’ll sim­ply sulk in cold soil, re­tard­ing their growth. Wait un­til Labour Week­end, when the risk of late frosts has passed.
