Welcome to May - I hope that you have a source of juicy large feijoas, surely one of the best things about autumn time.
We were lucky last week to be tidying a garden with a huge feijoa fall, which weren't loved by the tenants. Toni & I happily tidied them away and took them home to grateful children.
We've highlighted a few May jobs that will keep you busy on sunny days in your garden.
Enjoy the month of May.
Autumn is nature's best planting time, so now is the time for new trees & shrubs to be placed in the earth with love.
Look ahead to spring - if you plant your strawberries now you will be rewarded with an early crop which will fruit for longer.
Now is time to take a look at your indoor plants. A top up of new container mix, a liquid feed and reduce the watering as temperatures have dropped.
Now is the time to plant winter & spring colour and you'll see the stocks of camellia & friends in the garden centre in the coming months. Remember to get some camellia feed too, to keep them happy.
If you don't have time to do these jobs or others in your garden in May, our sparkly gardener's would love to help. Contact us here to book an appointment.
