Your Garden for February

Summer is here and that means time to give your plants a good feed with 'seasol' or equivalent to help them along and mulch to ready for the next bout of heat. Lettuce, beans, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, capsicum and tomatoes are ready for picking at your local community garden.
For your garden get broccoli, brussel sprouts,  cauliflower, leeks, onions, cabbage seeds started in seed trays (remembering to keep them moist) ready for planting out in 4-6 weeks. Plant seeds/seedlings out now beetroot, carrot, chives, lettuce, kohl rabi, parsley, radish, spring onions, silverbeet, turnips. Your tomatoes will need a really good feed and mulch if you want a bumper crop
