Has Spring Arrived?

After the wet winter, particularly where flooding and waterlogging has been a problem, soils will be starved of nutrients.

All plants need regular feeding while they’re growing if you want to get the best out of them. Correct feeding produces strong, healthy plants that perform brilliantly, and as they’ll start into growth this month, now’s the time to top up their nutrients.

At this time of year, it’s usually better to feed with a slow-release granular feed or, much better, a continuous release feed. These will feed plants for up to six months from just one application now. What could be easier?

Making your own garden compost is a great way of producing your own humus-rich material for use as a soil improver and mulching material.

Any plant material can be used, as long as it isn’t diseased.

You’ll need a compost bin to keep all the material together and provide the correct conditions for speedy rotting.

Make sure there’s a good mix of plant material, and that any stems or large leaves have been cut into smaller pieces, otherwise they’ll take ages to rot down. You can speed up the rotting process by adding Miracle-Gro Compost Maker.

Key Tips
Rembember to keep turning the compost getting the right mix of Green and Brown waste, compost accelerators will help produce heat which will make your  compost faster.
