During the recent spell of fine weather and with more forecast, David Coton has been careful to make sure that none of the container grown plants at the Garden Centre dry out. This is particularly important if you are on holiday and he has these suggestions for other jobs that will keep you busy in the garden during August.
Oase is a company that is passionate about water, with a huge range of products that will soon include a brand new indoor aquarium range. That's why I recently went over to Germany with my colleague Andrew Hall to visit their headquarters.

This year Oase have released the NEW Aquamax Eco Classic solids handling waterfall and filtration pump. The new model replaces the Aquamax Eco Start pumps with additional sizes which have been added to the range.
The Oase SwimSkim 50 Pond Skimmer is the big brother of the SwimSkim 25, it is larger in size and has been designed to handle pond surfaces up to 50 square meters, hence the name SwimSkim 50.
The Hozelock Bioforce Revolution Pond Filter is an innovative design with a winding handle and new filtration system, and will make life much easier for pond keepers. Before the release date we were lucky enough to get close up of this product during a visit to Hozelock’s headquarters in Minworth, Birmingham.
With the recent hot weather encouraging everyone out into the garden and the threat of frost disappearing during May, David Coton is in no doubt that this is going to be a busy month.
With warmer weather and Easter coming along soon, the garden centre is getting increasingly busy with customers stocking up on bedding plants to fill planters, borders and hanging baskets with colour that will last all summer. There are always plenty of jobs to do in the garden during April and David Coton has these suggestions.
Whether it's a bleak December or the more mild weather we are becoming used to, you can still spend useful time in the garden during the last month of the year. David Coton suggests some garden jobs that can occupy the short days.
