PLANT GARLIC CLOVES
Garlic is a hardy plant and does best when planted in mid autumn. This allows them to put down some roots into the "still warm" soil before winter falls. Then in spring, garlic will come to life again ready to grow throughout the remainder of the year.

If birds are a problem in your area then it may be a good idea to net the newly planted garlic. With the light soil in containers and raised beds they find it very easy to peck out the bulbs.

If you are unable to plant your garlic this week, it can be planted any time up to Christmas day. Click here for more details on planting garlic in raised beds and containers.

HARVEST WINTER RADISH

WATER WHEN NEEDED
Normally from October onwards raised beds and containers do not need watering. However, keep your eye out for unusually warm weather and water the remaining crops when required. Any plants still in containers may well also need watering. Read our detailed article on watering raised beds and containers here.

In particular, if you have been growing potatoes for Christmas in containers, then these may well still need watering in October.
