Garden Calendar - FEB/MAR/APR
Arno King

The temperatures are cooling as we head from the last weeks of autumn
into winter. These mild days, with their sunny clear blue skies are great for working in the garden. Make the most of this time of year to do major projects such as clearing and levelling areas; preparing new garden beds; installing a new rainwater tank; and undertaking building projects such as that extension to the shadehouse or the new potting shed. At other times of the year heavy rain and storms can disrupt these projects. Do not be confused by those southern magazines or TV programmes – now is not the time to retreat inside. The garden is calling and there is always plenty to do.
