SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Posted on 11 May, 2019 at 10:55

At last, weather is started to get warmer encouraging new growth around the garden, time to get vegetable beds ready for those seedling carefully nurtured in the greenhouse and plant your bedding plant arrangements.

Exciting times around the corner, but the trouble is, pests thrive with growing plants, slugs and snails expecially but now there is a completely harmless to children and pets answer to the slug probles, it is SLUG GONE, developed by British Wool, it is  chemical free granules that you spread around your plants (expecially Hosta's and veg) that, when waterered bond together to make a mat that slugs cannot cross, we trialled it for the past 2 year and not only does it work but it is peace of mind, no bits for children, pets or birds to pick up, a completely safe method of slug control that works.

We are selling it for £3.20 for a 1 litre bag or £6.00 for 2 litres at the same postge cost of £2.80 on this website and it is selling fast.

We are also selling 6" plant labels that have so much more writing space than the normal 4" size which means much more information can be written so you always know just where you are with the plants, what to expect and when. 25 labels for £1.80 or 50 for £2.90 both of which are post free.

Other items that are going really well at this time are the Orchid saucers, they match the pots so well and are flying off the shelves, you can find them under the 'pot' section and can get a real bargain if you order more then one pack or get them with the orchid pots.

New out are the plant rings, galvanised for durability outside as well as in so the plants with the thicket stems, those that need to be fastened to trellis or have a thick sturdy cane support can really bre taken care of these come in a pack of 50 for only £2.50, the ring is easily opened then closed again around the plant with very little pressure to make it secure, cuts out tying lots of small shoots to trellis and can  be done in a fraction of the time.

We got behind this year with the plants, we put up a tunnel but the weather was so windy when it was time for covering in the plastic sheeting we had to wait just over 3 weeks until the job could be completed hence late sowing but now everything is really thriving in there and there is just aboout enough space for a chair so I can take a cup of coffee in and a book when I have time and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet time.

Jobs to do are many, potting up your seedlings prior to planting, sowing later seeds, don't forget we still have the Seed compost offer on, well worth going for, it is proving very popular this year, tending to lawns, fruit trees and climbers to check, so much fun to be had in the Garden in Spring, enjoy it all
