Letters from the garden
Another Bank Holiday, we hope you all enjoyed it, as Autumn is already creeping in just a little and all the little ones go back to school so that sets us up for the next season.
I’m hoping for an Indian summer but not sure, I’m already hurumphing! with the fleece on and off, I’m not a happy lady, not sure if that’s the weather or an age thing!!!
As I have already let our lovely clients know this is the time for Spring bulbs to be bought and planted over the next couple of months, along with any new planting and lots feed and soil for beds and borders, lawn treatments and all the other lovely jobs to do.
Cut back the lavenders if not already done and shape them so they don’t get leggy, keep them trimmed back, hedges get them booked in as they will need doing, and if this year is anything to go by will need a good trim.
Just one thing to tell you all Simon Holland from Wyevales in Rake is project managing his own Garden SOS for the Community Hospital in Petersfield, he’s had lots of help and suppliers have been very kind, we are helping with planting and landscaping as a company, along with quite a few other Landscapers and would like to say we are glad to support Simon and the Hospital, he’s doing a great job and it should be done by the 9th September, hopefully there will be coverage and we will keep you all updated.
This is also a good time to book consultancy as we can advise on what to do if you are one of the keen gardeners that just needs guidance or a planting plan to work towards.
Have fun and I hope you get to enjoy the garden, hopefully we haven’t lost the warmth just yet and can enjoy a few more glasses of wine by the Firepit.
