Did you know it's time to get eggplants started?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

In this week’s issue we say August is the ideal time to sow eggplants. Plus keep your guard up against cold weather, choose flowers to grow from seed, get a move on with chillies and capsicums, start sowing basil and trick coriander seedlings.

Follow our guide to spring soil preparation and nominate a gardening hero for Ryman Healthcare Gardener of the Year. Plus go in the draw for $35 vouchers from Awapuni Nurseries and sensational new peace lilies from Gellert’s.

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:

Job well done

Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

Everyone, including women, should know how to replace the washer in their taps, to stop that annoying dripping leak.
All you need is a packet of washers, a screw driver and an adjustable wrench. It’s easy.
It also helps if you know where and how to turn the water off at your Toby and hot water cylinder.
Independence saves money and gives one a sense of pride.
