The Star 35 Gardening Latest Christchurch news at www. Still time to plant winter vegetables .kiwi Thursday March 16 2017 PLANT: Get your autumn/winter vegetable crops in now. For more gardening inspiration, pick up the latest issue of kiwigardener AUTUMN IS a great time for catching up on garden chores and to plan and plant before winter arrives. For vegetable lovers, if you haven’t started already then get in quick and sow your autumn/winter vegetable crops. First, prepare the soil and add in manure. Also, ensure you keep young plants protected from slugs and snails. If you are not planting in your vege garden, don’t leave the beds empty. Sow a “green manure or cover crop” to add nutrients into the soil and protect beds. Sow green crops directly. Once grown, dig them back into the soil and leave to break down for six to eight weeks before planting. Alternatively, “blanket cover” beds by applying a thick layer of mulch, autumn leaves, or wood chip. Summer herb gardens are coming to an end as many perennial herbs start flowering and then produce seed in autumn. This does not mean you cannot have a winter herb garden, however, you may need to plant fresh specimens VARIATIONS: Always label where bulbs are in the garden so they are not accidently dug up. at this time of year. Cut back herbs like mint, sage, rosemary and thyme to promote new fresh growth. Keep planting bulbs. There are many different varieties available to give variations in height and colour in the garden or containers. Always label where the bulbs are in the garden so they are not damaged or accidently dug up when dormant over winter. When autumn rains arrive, the renovation of existing lawns or the laying of new lawns can begin. When preparing your site for a new lawn, it is advisable to have a slight slope to allow water to run off, thereby avoiding puddling. A handy tip is to sow a mixture of grass seed as this provides a better all-yearround lawn. With existing lawns, fertiliser can be applied and watered in well. When irrigating your lawn, carry out this in the cooler part of the day to maximise water usage. Prune peach and nectarine trees that have finished cropping. Remove old wood and retain enough new seasons growth for next season’s fruit. It’s always a good idea to maintain tree height at 2m to 3m to allow for easier picking, and for netting if birds become a problem next season. If you are planning on adding trees to your garden this year, planting during autumn/ early winter is ideal so your tree has enough time to establish a good root system before summer. Firstly think about where you want your trees to go in the garden and what you want them to achieve ie: provide shelter/privacy, ornamental or provide fruit. It is important to select varieties that suit your climate, especially with fruit trees. Container gardens are a very simple and effective approach to adding colour and interest to your property throughout the year. Containers can be replanted at regular intervals with flowering annuals. In larger containers, bulbs can be planted to emerge through flowering annuals in spring for maximum impact. •More gardening, p36 & 37 internAl frenCh doors 15% off froM $145 Musgroves externAl frenCh doors froM $795 Use your outdoor living areas all year round • Warm & dry in winter • UV protection for summer • Stylish & permanent • 5 year warranty “AS SEEN ON TV” 760 Cover 5 rib And CorrugAted .8 gAuge thiCk CleArlite 20% off Was $14 Per Metre Now $11.20 Per Metre NEW ENTRANCE 3 Musgrove Close, Wigram • Phone 322 7922 Open Hours: Monday-Friday 8am-5pm | Saturday 8am-4pm diAgonAl trellis frAMed And unfrAMed in vArious sizes froM $15 Visit to share your Musgrove’s Project and WIN FREE movie tickets to the top 10 entries and be in the draw to win a $500 voucher.
