HERE ARE A FEW SUMMERY TIPS TO KEEP YOUR GARDEN IN TOP SHAPE WITHOUT BRAKING THE BANK OR YOUR BACK.

  • Mulch your flower beds. Mulching reduces moisture loss, weed growth and it also makes your garden look neat and tidy.
  • Reduce your water bill by watering after sunset and before sunrise.
  • Water less often and for longer periods. By doing that you are encouraging the plants to develop better bigger root systems.
  • Encourage birdlife in your garden. The birds will help you to keep some of the nasties at bay.
  • Use a slow release general fertilizer like Bio-Ganic all purpose or Vita 3:1:5 on all your flower beds to make sure your plants are on a healthy diet.

 

Lastly – in true festive spirit – remember to share. Pick up snails and mole crickets after dark and share them by throwing them over your neighbour’s wall. Crack a beer and relax on your patio while listening to the cries of joy emanating from your neighbours yard.
