AU­GUST

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - GARDEN -

Most plants do 80 per cent of their grow­ing in spring, so feed and water to make the most of the growth spurt. Prune hy­brid tea roses. Cut them back by a third, place the prun­ings 30cm deep in pots of sand, keep them moist in semi-shade and by Christ­mas you will have new bushes for gifts. Har­vest the sea­son’s first ten­der as­para­gus, tiny globe ar­ti­chokes, new shoots of spinach, snow peas, baby peas and all those other home­grown lux­u­ries.
