Things to do this GIY week

* Weeds will be voracious this month, so keep on top of them while you're waiting for big-leaved plants like courgettes etc to cover over the soil and prevent them from growing.

* If you have harvested your garlic, you can dry them out for two weeks or so either outside (if it's dry) or on a sunny windowsill or in a garage. Dried like this they will store longer over the winter.

* Plant out remaining indoor-sown seedlings.
