Time to exercise your green thumb

13/05/2020

Spending extra time at home is the perfect opportunity to get stuck in to home improvement projects. Establishing or updating your garden should be near the top of the list, as it's a great way to upgrade your property, and Autumn is an excellent time for a backyard blitz in Queensland.

Creating a veggie patch is a project that can offer ongoing benefits, bringing fresh herbs and produce literally to your doorstep.

Here's some tips for establishing and caring for a vegetable garden:

1) Get the right tools

You'll need a shovel, rake, trowel, fertiliser and good quality soil.

2) Do the ground work

Preparing for your new garden is an important step. Consider if you need to build a garden bed or install a planter box depending on what you intend to grow. Different plants require different conditions - some like shade while others thrive on direct sunlight. Do your research before picking your location.

3) Choose the right varieties

If you're keen to start enjoying the fruits of your labour as soon as possible, try fast growing produce like leafy greens and vegetables such as tomato, broccolini and snow peas.
