WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

Cre­ate a com­post bin, ready for all the ex­tra dead plant ma­te­rial and sur­plus har­vest you may ac­crue in the com­ing months.

FLY­ING THE NEST

For those with itchy shears, you should fi­nally be able to cut back your hedges, as birds are likely to have fin­ished nest­ing. Bird boxes can also be cleaned. For ad­vice, see: bit.ly/cleanbbox
