With warmer weather arriving, this is the best time of the year to be stocking up on bedding plants to fill planters, borders and hanging baskets. Our garden centre becomes noticeably busier and the number of jobs that need to be done around the garden begins to accelerate. David Coton has these suggestions to keep you occupied.
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.
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.
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.
In this review David Coton tests the Oase range of Pond Vacuum Cleaners, this includes the Oase Pondovac Classic, Pondovac 4 and the Pontec Pondomatic.
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.
It's that time of the year again when keen gardeners, celebrities and the general public look forward to attending and being inspired by the fabulous displays at the Chelsea Flower Show.
