Letters from the garden
Brrrr! It’s actually got a bit chilly at last and now we are going into spring. Watch the frosts on the new plants you’ve bought recently, as I know you have. We have been plant shopping for clients recently and it’s so much fun but you still need to keep an eye on the weather.
Looking to the new season, we will be cutting very soon and are already getting phone calls for these jobs, and now we get to meet new clients and work on new gardens alongside our year long contracts, which is a good mix for the teams, this year we will have 2 garden teams with a wealth of skills. They have worked hard over the last year to build this and we are very proud so here’s hoping we have another good year of gardening.
Mow ‘n’ Blow are opening an office down at Wyevales Garden and Landscaping Centre at Rake, this will be Christian’s base for the Landscaping team and he will selling garden buildings alongside. You will also find me there from time to time for plants so if you need anything don’t forget that as well as the garden maintenance we can cover just about everything else as well.
Once we are into March we can start thinking feeds for lawns and general treatments, if beds need a top up feed them too, this can with a pellet feed or, a really good compost, don’t forget to muck the roses they love it! Don’t forget your pots either, this is probably a good time to check your hose pipes and irrigation and your greenhouses, I’m sure there are some plants to be potted on.
If you need any help in the garden please do not hesitate to call 01420 83471.
