What to plant in Au­gust

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - CLIPPINGS -

Buy two kinds of basil, a pot of tar­ragon, oregano and two pun­nets of pars­ley, to set you up for a de­li­cious sum­mer. Choose this year’s “sum­mer an­nual” for at least six months of flow­ers. I choose zin­nia, cos­mos, nas­tur­tium or petu­nias. Plant pota­toes. Lots. Don’t clean win­ter’s leaves out of your pond yet! This is frog breed­ing time. Gar­den cen­tres will have plants bloom­ing – this is the time to fill up bor­ing cor­ners.
