It’s August! Kids driving you mad?! Get them out in the garden! Here are some things to be doing this month:-

• Plant overwintering brassica plants including kale, broccoli and cauliflower;

• Thin root crops such as beetroot, carrot and turnips;

• Stop cordon tomato plants from getting taller by taking out the growing tip;

• Cut squash and pumpkin leaves to help the fruits to ripen;

• Harvest spring planted onions, shallots and garlic.
