What to do this week:

After heavy rain last week it’s timely to attend to our pots, check the drainage, make sure they are sitting on pot feet and draining freely.

You can use a chopstick to open the potting mix and help with drainage.


Pot feet will help pots drain freely


Check your garden for erosion after heavy rain. Spread a mulch to stop water run-off. Make swales to direct water.

Time to feed sweet peas to push them along. Once they dry out after heavy rain, water them with a seaweed solution, Harvest or Nitrosol to encourage good root development.
