MARCH MEANS…

RENOVATE CITRUS TREES
Now to encourage a bumper fruit crop.  Fertilise with Organic Xtra under the drip line of the tree. If leaves show yellowing, also apply a dose of Eco88’s and water in well.

SMARTEN UP PATCHY & WORN LAWNS
By re-sowing bare spots. Simply cultivate the bare soil with a light dose of Eco88’s raked in, sow a lawn repair mix and water in thoroughly.

MARCH IS AN EXCELLENT TIME FOR PLANTING A WIDE RANGE OF VEGGIES
Planting now will mean you can make the most of the mild autumn conditions ahead.

PLANT SOME GARLIC
Separate the garlic bulb into cloves before planting. Garlic planted in March will be ready for harvest by September.

REPLANT YOUR HERB GARDEN
In preparation for cooking winter stews & soups. Good all year herbs include rosemary, parsley, sage, thyme & mint.

COLLECT FALLEN LEAVES FOR COMPOSTING
Add some Organic Xtra and some moisture to speed up the composting process. Leaf litter makes glorious compost!
