Choosing Water Tanks in Perth and Other Gardening Tips This Autumn
Generally, gardening practices need to be adjusted based on the season, especially if you’re caring for edible plants. What fruits and vegetables to plant, what to remove, and how to tend to the garden—these decisions can all vary depending on the wetness or the dryness of the weather, and the temperature range that dominates the season. Aside from ensuring that your plants are safe and healthy for the next few months, you also have to prepare for the following season. Since autumn is in full swing, you should have started modifying how you take care of your plants. If you have a vegetable patch, the summer vegies in your garden beds should have been replaced by now with cool-season plants like broccoli, spinach, and onions. If you have citrus trees, make sure you give them a light pruning. As always, the soil should be fertilised and hoed regularly for the plants to get the nourishment they need.
