PLANT SEEDS & SEEDLINGS NOW!
April is a busy time in the veggie garden. It is the perfect time to plant a HUGE range of seeds and seedlings.
PLANT ANNUALS & BULBS NOW!
For pretty, cheerful colour later this year, in spring.
PLANT PERENNIALS, TREES & SHRUBS NOW!
While the soil is still warm enough for them to establish before winter. Divide existing perennials like agapanthus, daylilies, dietes & lliriope.
Even if the soil is moist, establishing plants will still need watering.
FERTILISE & MULCH YOUR ENTIRE GARDEN
Even though April can be wet, we are moving towards the drier months. It is still warm enough to support good growth for a while yet & the summer rain will have washed away a lot of the nutrients from the soil. Toss around a generous amount of Organic Xtra. It’s a great all round fertilizer and will boost your soil health and add loads of valuable nutrients. Top it off with lashings of a good organic mulch and your garden will come alive with microbes & worms.
FERTILISE YOUR LAWN NOW!
So it can store enough reserves to resist winter diseases & pests as well as energy for root & shoot growth in spring. Apply Eco88s and water in well. Eco88s will cleverly give your lawn both an immediate, visual boost, and longer term slow release nutrient.
