What you need to do in your garden this October

As summer approaches, complete garden projects and try to plant plants and seedlings before the heat sets in.

This is the month when an abundance of flowers are in full bloom so take time to enjoy and celebrate your beautiful garden.

Fertilise your lawn with 3:2:1 (28) SR and water it well. A good idea is to fertilise the lawn and garden just before it looks like it is going to rain.

Fertilise the flowerbeds with 3:1:5 (60g per square metre). And make sure that you water your flowerbeds before and after you have fertilised them.

Prune the hedges and fertilise them too, with 3:1:5, watering once again before and after fertilising them.

Encourage and prolong the flowering time of annuals by dead-heading (removing all dead flowers) them regularly.

Don’t forget, it’s also time to trim your Azaleas, once they have finished flowering.
