Facts, Ideas & Tips


Tips for your SPRING garden! 

  • Feed your lawn on a monthly basis from now on until end of summer with 2:3:2 fertilizer at the rate of 60g per square meter (and remember to water immediately)
  • Start fertilizing flowering shrubs with 3:1:5 fertilizer
  • Remember when fertilizing: it is better to use small quantities often rather than large quantities less frequently
  • Now is the time to tackle the broad leaf weeds on the lawn while they are growing actively. Apply a selective weed killer
  • Remember to switch ON your irrigation system and have it serviced for the growing season
  • Now is the time to add generous amounts of compost both to improve soil structure and serve as mulch
  • All winter pruning should now be finished.
  • Ensure that your staked trees are not damaged by their ties
  • Have your lawn mower serviced by a reputable agent

IDEA OF THE MONTH.
It makes absolute sense to have a
vegetable and herb patch
at home; not only because of the ridiculous price of food, but also it brings much joy to our souls and goodness to our bodies. It really is not difficult to have such a project going, and also you can have a beautiful “edible landscape”
 … It is beautiful to look at, and you can eat it!
Contact Jean-Jacques for affordable and DIY options .
