January, 2016

January is usually too hot to do anything strenuous in the garden.

However, special attention should be paid to watering and mulching at this time.

Feed your roses across summer to encourage another flush of flowers in Autumn.

Apply liquid fertiliser to summer vegetables every fortnight to ensure bountiful crops across Summer.

Treat roses for aphids, black spot and other fungus over the warmer months.
Treat citrus for scale and citrus leafminer.
Treat scale and aphid infestations on other plants that may be attracting hordes of ants .

And treat yourself to a pair of virtually indestructible FELCO secateurs...
