GardenSite were once again pleased to support the Boldmere Community Festival which took place on 18 November, with the Christmas Lights switched on by Alan Gardner, well known for his appearances as TV's Autistic Gardener.
When the leaves start falling from the trees it is essential to cover your pond with netting. Here Dan Everton describes the different types of pond netting that will prevent leaves having a detrimental effect on pond water and wildlife.
If you allow leaves to fall to the bottom of the pond they will rot, releasing nitrates and noxious gases into the water harming fish and plant life.
Netting also protects any fish you may have from predators such as herons and cats, and once plants have grown through, the netting largely disappears from view.
Our most popular pond netting with 1.5cm mesh is dark green to blend in with the surroundings and is available in a variety of sizes from 3 mtrs x 2mtrs to 10 mtrs x 6 mtrs.
Unobstrusive Child Safety Netting is made from durable 4mm high density polyethylene braid that is UV stabilised and comes in ocean blue or coal jet black. The mesh size is designed to prevent trapping a toddler's head but large enough to limit a child's movement. Available in many sizes up to 10 mtrs x 6 mtrs.
The Oase AquaNet Pond Cover, that measures 3 mtrs x 4 mtrs is naturally weather resistant and comes complete with pegs that fix easily to the ground.
At this time of the year you'll find a fabulous selection of summer bedding at our Garden Centre in Birmingham. David Coton will be planting the bedding in containers this month to achieve a wonderful display of colour and here are some other jobs to do in the garden in June.
Elite Greenhouses have always been at the forefront of new design combined with an unrivalled user-friendly experience and the Edge has got it all.
There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2019.
Sometimes only the best will do. And if you are looking for the best domestic shed on the UK market it will probably be branded with the Biohort name and logo.
