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.

 

Mulch During Hot Weather!

We have had a few hot days and Plants in pots can dry out very rapidly.Keep an eye on them daily. What you want to know is if they are moist or dry below the surface. Use a finger to find this out. If dry water immediately.If you do not want to prod your compost test the pot for weight. You will soon know when a pot is wet or dry. For mulch on pots add a little leaf mould first. This adds life and fertility to your pot (You may have to remove a little surface compost).Then add a mulch of composted or chipped bark.This is the way to use your Leaf Mould economically and To Great Advantage.
