February in your garden

Watch out for pests descending on almost ripe summer fruits . Use a natural method to deter and eliminate these.

This is a good time to plant autumn, winter and spring maturing vegetables e.g. winter carrots, beetroot, parsnip, swedes, turnip, brassicas, celery, broad beans and silverbeet. Grains and other seed plants are ripening fast.

Harvesting
The first of the summer grown long keepers should be ready to pick, dry and store if they were planted early enough. When handling vegetables always treat them with care as they’ll store much longer this way.

Planting

Warmer areas: bok choy, beans, (and the following if no danger of heavy frosts) peas, potatoes, radish, spinach, silverbeet.

Cooler areas (and most gardens): beetroot, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, chicory, kale, leek, lettuce.
