Winter Gardening...

December 04, 2017

Some of us are guilty of neglecting our gardens during the cold winter months, but now is actually a great time to tend to your outside space and prep for the spring!  Year round maintenance is the key to having that dream garden with minimal effort.

Add a splash of colour to your garden with winter loving violas, pansies and winter heathers - just because it's bleak outside it doesn't mean some plants and flowers won't thrive.  Our Bordermix Topsoil is perfect to start you off.

Get ready for frosts and protect less hardy plants and veggies with a layer of bark or mulch, our Landscaping Bark is perfect for keeping the ground warm and the roots protected.

Smarten up your borders and prevent rotting over winter - cut back dead plants, foliage and prune thin branches.  Tidy up dead leaves and make a compost bin; these will rot down over the winter and you can add them to your borders and beds come spring or summer!

Dig in some of our Wintermix Compost - a fertile mix of organic compost and well rotted horse and chicken manure into your soil.  This will keep those borders and beds topped full of nutrients and improve the structure and drainage during wet and chilly times, with the added bonus of getting your soil ready for spring planting.

Garden birds need our help throughout winter so put out a little food and water each day for Mr Robin and friends!
