Over the next couple of dark winter months and in a shameless bid to advertise my company Mow-N-Blow, I hope to enlighten, with a few thoughts for the garden. Yes I know its winter and it seems as though there really isn’t a lot to do, but I did say shameless! No really this is the time of year when a lot of hard work can prepare you for a much easier year ahead.
After being in the business of gardening for many years, I believe that time spent now in the garden buys itself back over the year, preparing and performing projects now, to enjoy them for spring and summer.
For the next two months I hope to give some tips for the garden in winter, including machine maintenance, leaf mulching, winter garden projects and more. I have worked my way through this trade for over 20 years and covered all aspects of it and even won an award or two along the way, so I hope you enjoy reading as I much as I enjoy gardening.
