Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs

  • The vegetable garden has gone past its summer peak.
  • Watch sweet corn as it is becoming ready, also parsnips, potatoes and swede turnips.
  • Get rid of all old crops when they are finished and make sure not to let weeds get away and go to seed.
  • When lifting potatoes, make sure to get out all small potatoes because these will become 'ground-keepers', and can carry blight and blackleg disease.

Greenhouse and House Plants

  • Keep picking greenhouse tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers as soon as they are ready, otherwise cropping tails off quickly.
  • Stop feeding most greenhouse plants now because they will have enough in the pot to keep them going and they are better going into winter a little 'harder'.
  • Stop feeding house plants except those that flower in winter.
  • Take cuttings of evergreen shrubs and trees and insert them in pots of two parts peat/one part sand in the greenhouse, covering them in white polythene.
  • Pot up some freesia corms when available for wonderful scent in spring
  • See www.garden.ie for more information.
