  • Soak seedlings in Tui Organic Seaweed Plant Tonic before planting to prevent transplant shock, and apply every 2-4 weeks to promote strong root growth, cope with the warmer temperatures and keep your garden thriving.
  • Tomatoes are hungry plants so keep feeding tomatoes planted in garden beds with Tui Tomato Food.
  • Keep an eye out for slugs, snails, caterpillars, aphids and whitefly. These unweclome visitors can make a real mess of your vegetable garden and are best dealt to as soon as possible. Lay Tui Quash slug & snail control to control slugs and snails.
  • Blast small infestations of aphids and whitefly off with a hose, or if the infestation is large spray with a suitable insect spray.
  • Mildew may appear on courgettes and cucumbers; spray with a suitable spray from your garden centre to control it.
  • Onions and garlic: these are traditionally harvested within a month or so of the longest day. The leaves of both onions and garlic will tell you when they are ready to be harvested: the tops will begin to wither and die down. Harvest by digging up the plants with a fork, knock off the excess soil, and leave to dry in the sun for a number of days until the skin resembles paper. Store in a well-ventilated, dry place.
