Sunday Herald Sun - - Front Page -

Treat to a preChrist­mas pick-me-up of pel­letised fer­tiliser and a light g cut back. Brighten up decks, pa­tios and court­yards with a few pots or hang­ing bas­kets. Apart from look­ing good, they are also be­lieved to re­pel aphids, bee­tles and a range of other b bugs.

Plant warmth-lov­ing ones such as egg­plant and corn, along with beans, beet­root, cap­sicum, car­rot, zuc­chini and a few late toma­toes.

Buy a pot or two of al­ready-flow­er­ing white Christ­mas lilies for ve­randa dis­play, lay, then plant them out af­ter the big g day. a pair of gar­den ham­mocks for apres-Christ­mas gar­den slum­ber­ing.
