Autumn the Magical Time in Your Garden

With Autumn arriving it should be a busy time in your garden.Potting up for Autumn Winter colour, putting new plants into borders, preparing beds for next spring, feed plants through autumn to build them up for a great start in Spring etc.It is a time of  Fruits and berries a time to reflect and plan.
What worked and what did not this summer.Potting up Spring flowering bulbs and plants gives you hope beyond the coming winter.
Autumn is the time to introduce Leafmould and  feed plants and get them ready for their first flush in Spring (stop feeding before the first frosts). Mulching borders and plants in pots is so important. With plants in pots remove  weeds and scrape some soil of the top, then add a layer of Leafmould to introduce new organic life into the soil in your pots.Do this in Autumn and you will reap the benefits for your potted plants next spring. Give them a feed of Leafmould Organic fertiliser at the same time to encourage even more life. Live,Fresh,Leafmould is the only product which actually works because it has organic life just as nature intended. You can only get it from us because it is so difficult to produce and bring to market.Lots of dedication and year round work is needed.

 

A "Snippet" About Rose Care.

After a cold snap like we have now in March it is a good idea to keep an eye on any new roses you have planted or any roses you have already pruned. Frost can affect these open ends of the stems. You can tell if frost has got into the stem. Inspect all cut stems closely! If you see a two toned effect, usually purple to black and cream to white and maybe some rippling in the outer skin. This will indicate possible frost damage. Get your secateurs and cut below the infected end into fresh green stem. If you do not do this the frost damage will progress down the stem eventually killing that stem right into the rootstock. Let the cold weather pass before doing any cutting!

An Old Portland Rose "Jacques Cartier" excellent rose.Roses love leaf mould and well rotted manure. Do not give them a mulch of woody matter! Your garden compost may have a fair percentage of wood. Roses do not like bark too much either.
