October Tip: use a plastic rake when sweeping up leaves from borders- it is less likely to tear plants than a metal one.

October Task: sow broad beans 25cm apart for an early crop next year. If you live in a cold region, cover with cloches or horticultural fleece. This will also help protect them from the birds.
