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.

 

Cruel Start To Spring

What a nasty way to start spring. Do not worry though, we often get snow in March and it will do no lasting harm.Wildlife and plants know how to cope. The worst damage will only be to flowers which had already opened before the snow started. Nature just knows how to cope a lot better than we can! With such nasty weather all gardening has temporarily stopped so I thought we could show some happier photographs to remind us what will be coming.

This is one of our very own Japanese Maple seedlings.We call it Sylvan Seedling

Back to a brighter day and our very own Japanese Maple.We call it "Sylvan Seedling"

This is it's spring 2017 leaves.It starts the year as a smoky pink, then may develop some green before turning rich purple and then the brightest red in Autumn. Year round colour. Maples tend to like woodland conditions so will thrive with a good mulch of leaf mould,well rotted manure and they love composted bark.
