GAR­DEN TASKS

Whangarei Report - - GARDENING GARDENING -

Make mar­malade

Pick sur­plus cit­rus and make pre­serves and mar­malades as Christ­mas gifts. A glass jar of pre­served le­mon is su­per-easy to make and looks gor­geous.

Give some sup­port

Sup­port your de­cid­u­ous climbers that have sud­denly come into leaf with ties or stakes.

Deep wa­ter­ing

If it turns out to be a hot, dry sum­mer at your place, give your well-es­tab­lished trees the treat of a good, deep wa­ter­ing once a week.

Check for brown spots

Check all your pre­cious plants for the brown spots caused by fun­gus and wal­lop them with a fungi­cide spray.
