TIME TO TIDY UP

NZ Gardener - Garden Diary 2018 - - Growing Tips -

Don’t leave gar­den rub­bish sitting around, es­pe­cially in or­chards. Prun­ings from sickly ap­ple and pear trees, in par­tic­u­lar, should be re­moved to stop the spread of dis­ease. Save kin­dling-sized twiggy of­f­cuts for fire-starters, saw up larger branches into fire­wood and mulch smaller ma­te­rial into wood chips for use in spring and sum­mer.
