Repeat harvest lettuce varieties require a soil rich in fertiliser so they grow fast or they will taste bitter. At this time of the year plant a new crop every 3 weeks to ensure a continual supply of fresh new leaves.
Citrus have finished flowering and now are putting their energy into the tiny developing fruit. It is time to thin this fruit to ensure large quality fruit for the following year. This means removing a portion of fruits from trees to result in larger yields & better fruit quality.
Start a program of feeding fruiting plants every 4 -6 weeks throughout the growing season, which is from August to May. Use the Plant feeding alert on the Richgro App as a reminder.
Treat insects that start to attack your lovely vegetables and fruit with Richgro Beat-A-Bug Naturally Based Insect Spray. Apply this at the first sign of attack and then keep in a good routine of spraying over the leaves (don’t forget underside) every 10-12 days during the pest season.
