Letters from the garden
Well my beds and borders are holding up well still not needing to cut anything back yet, the grasses are looking amazing at this time of year along with the Prunus Kojo no-mai which is a stunning colour at the moment.
The mowing is still in full swing and won’t stop for a while, we are starting to do lawn treatments now, and also bulb planting, feed for the beds, soil for the beds and additional planting.
It’s been a busy year with work and additions to the Mow’n’Blow family, we have our teams and we are happy, don’t forget autumn and winter is the best time for those gardens that have lots of beds and borders it’s when all the hard work gets done, and even if you don’t but you still have hedges and shrubs that need reducing this is the time to be looking at it.
It’s still a bit early for rose pruning, but be ready with the muck as they love it! And will perform for you, as long as they are not neglected, everyone needs food for the soul.
Christian has recently started the run on talks, it was a Water talk for the Hawkley and Empshott Horticultural Society and it went down well, everyone had lots of questions and there were lots of familiar faces for us so thank you for attending, if you wish to ask us about different talks we can do please do not hesitate to contact us.
Enjoy the garden, go shopping it’s compost, feed and bulbs, have fun.
