Do you know what to plant in the garden right now?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

This week’s issue we say there should be a parsley plant near every kitchen door. It’s time to harvest sprouting broccoli, compile your spring seed list, sow Florence fennel, choose tomatoes wisely and check germinating seedlings every day.

Follow this month’s guide to plants to sow and grow and make a feeding station for native birds. Plus go in the draw for strawberry packs from Tui and copies of NZ Gardener’s August issue.

Delivered every Friday to your email inbox, Get Growing digital magazine offers seasonal gardening advice from the NZ Gardener magazine's team of experts. Each week we answer all your burning questions on raising fruit and veges and tell you the top tasks to do in your backyard this weekend. Subscribe here:

Sharing excess food in a kind way

Ellen Neighbourly Lead from Sandringham

Hi all, whether you have an old cardboard box or a shelf or make a little quirky thing like I have, it is really great to see how well people take up the unprejudiced sharing offer when I put my surplus fruit and rescued bread out there. Everything makes a difference for some people - and the nice thing is, other people are now adding their surplus so it has turned itself into a small Pataka Kai. And I get to pick the odd avocado somebody puts in there as a win-win.
Just take a minute a d think whether you have extra.
