    • A Seasonal Guide to the Greenhouse

      If you're interested in growing your own fruit and veg, this seasonal guide explaining what to grow and do in the greenhouse at each stage of the year will be of great help.

      One of the most valuable assets any gardener may possess is a greenhouse.  For those gardeners fortunate enough to have one, the growing season can be extended.  This enables gardeners to make the best use of the sun for longer periods of time. 

      A wide range of fruit and vegetable crops can be produced in a greenhouse.  Furthermore, since the greenhouse environment can be controlled, providing heat and extending the growing season it is important to understand which crops to plant during the different seasons of the year.

    • Creating Shade in Your Garden

      Creating Shade in Your Garden

      The case for purchasing a pergola, canopy, gazebo or garden arbour...

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the current hot weather as much as everyone else; but, sometimes, it’s nice to sit outside, in the shade, without feeling like you’re beginning to melt, or worrying about waking up in the morning as red as a lobster, with painful peeling shoulders. Trust me, sunburn is not a look you want to be sporting for the big meeting first thing on Monday.

      Creating some shelter in your garden offers you welcome respite from the scorching summer sun, allowing you to spend more time outside, at a much more comfortable temperature.

      A Guide to Feeding Plants in the Garden

      It’s been a great growing season up to now with plenty of rain and a good dollop of sun. Soil and compost are getting tired and some are struggling to keep up with the demands of voracious root systems. Feeding time!

A little bit extra is needed. But even plants in natural soil can starve their surroundings, especially fast growing and active plants.
