Other jobs on the plot

Liquid feed plants in greenhouse and outdoor pots, especially those that start fruiting, increase to weekly. Also use seaweed extract as a foliar feed.

Cut down broad beans when they have finished cropping and mulch over the bed.

Check brassicas for the next few months for white butterfly eggs/caterpillars. Remove any found by hand and relocate (for example to a sacrificial bed of nasturtiums).

Check potatoes for signs of blight, browning/shrivelling of leaves – remove and burn any affected foliage.

Check potted greenhouse plants for greenfly, such as aubergines and peppers. If any are found, stand the pots outdoors for a few days for their predators to get to work.
