Looking for planting tips?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

In this week’s issue we say growing organic tomatoes is easier than you think. We list more crops to plant on Labour Weekend and give tips for bigger and better tulips next year. Learn the right way to harvest herbs and enlist predatory insects to eat up aphid pests.

Build a foldable climbing frame for upwardly mobile crops plus go in the draw for vouchers from Awapuni Nurseries and a vege grower’s hamper from Yates.

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:
