Plant roses, shrubs, pot­ted peren­ni­als... and trel­lises. Head to the gar­den cen­tre to find out which na­tives bloom best in your area at this time of year – ev­ery cli­mate and soil is slightly dif­fer­ent and a good nurs­ery will know what will flower and thrive. Tend to your veg­etable gar­den, with globe ar­ti­chokes, as­para­gus roots, onion seedlings, straw­berry plants, cur­rants, rasp­ber­ries, thorn­less black­ber­ries, lo­gan­ber­ries and pas­sion­fruit vines to plant. Root out weeds from flower and vegie gar­dens now, when they don’t have the strength to fight back. Ex­am­ine the lawn for weeds and, when you find them, pour boil­ing wa­ter on them, or a quar­ter cup of sul­phate of am­mo­nia to burn them.
