Bring a friend or neighbour, seeds/plant material to share or just come along to meet like-minded locals.
After the recent rain, check your garden for any edible or kitchen garden plants that need a prune back into shape. Herbs like rosemary, thyme, oregano and many others all benefit from regular 'haircuts' to keep them growing more leaves.
If you have cuttings to spare, please bring them along to swap. Please wrap the stems in some wet newspaper or paper towel to keep them fresh for longer.
Watch out for citrus leaf miner on your fruit trees. Remove any affected leaves and fertilise your trees now with seaweed to boost the trace elements. A foliar spray under the leaves in the morning is ideal.
As usual, at our meeting we'll be discussing what to grow in your garden right now - the challenges and successes plus sharing seeds from our seed bank.
