VEG­ETABLE GAR­DEN JOBS FOR SEPTEM­BER

Garden Answers (UK) - - Gourmet Grower -

PLANT SPRING GREENS 1

Buy plugs from your gar­den cen­tre in Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber to plant 20cm (8in) apart. They need good ground to power their rapid growth next spring, and don’t for­get to net from pi­geons.

PRE­SERVE YOUR HAR­VEST 2

Har­vest­ing, clean­ing, pre­par­ing and cook­ing takes a sur­pris­ing amount of time. Make a day of it and in­vite friends round to help; you’ll have a laugh and get loads done.

TIDY STRAW­BER­RIES 3

Once they’ve fin­ished fruit­ing, re­move the straw mulch and clip back fo­liage to about 7.5cm (3in) above the crown. Mulch with well-rot­ted or­ganic mat­ter and save run­ners un­til well rooted.
