WHAT'S ON

AUGUST GARDENING 

August can be an interesting month. If the weather warms up it is ideal gardening time. However, be careful as the weather can sometimes carry a ‘sting’ in its tail and send us back into winter mode.

All things going well August should be all about getting back into the garden, preparing for spring planting and just generally having a tidy up.
New season stock starts flowing into our stores and soon we will be busting at the seams, wondering where to put it all!
Seed potatoes placed in trays now (with their blunt end upwards), and left in a warm, frost free area that gets plenty of light for a month to sprout before planting, will get you off to a good start and you will be enjoying tasty new potatoes at Christmas. 
 Jersey Bennes are our most popular 
variety. Great for boiling, salads,
casseroles, soups or mashing. 
An excellent potato for 
Christmas lunch!
Strawberries are one of the easiest and quickest fruit to grow. They don’t need much space and will fruit successfully grown in tubs, hanging baskets and even share a piece of vegetable or flower garden. Choose a sunny well drained spot and fork in Tui Strawberry Mix then mound up the soil and plant the strawberry on top. After planting put layers of straw around them which will keep the fruit off the soil and allow the fruit to ripen without the risk of rotting.
Now is the time to kill moss in lawns. Nichol’s Lawncare will kill the moss and encourage new grass growth to take over all in one applicatioAugust can be an interesting month.
