JOBS FOR THE MONTH

TASKS FOR YOUR VEGETABLE PATCH IN OCTOBER

10 MINUTE JOBS

HOE WEEDS

Although it’s now autumn, some weeds will make a last attempt to grow and produce seed before winter sets in. To prevent them from establishing and seeding, on dry days use a Dutch hoe and chop off any seedlings at soil level while they are small.

BUY GARLIC BULBS

There is still plenty of time to buy bulbs of garlic for autumn planting from local garden centres or specialist growers. Choose varieties that are suitable for growing in our climate and as soon as they are delivered unpack them in preparation for planting.

GATHER UP NETTING

Gather together netting and fleece that has been used to protect plants over the summer and give it a wash or brush down before folding and storing for use next year. If there are any rips, mend them straight away, because next spring you’ll be too busy!
