February Top Tips

Water deeply, less often to encourage stronger roots. Avoid wetting the foliage and avoid watering in the middle of the day. Early morning or evening is best.

#2 Pruning 

 Cut back summer flowering shrubs as the flowers fade and remove summer annuals and wildflowers as they begin to die back. Leave a few plants in and trying collecting your own seed.

#3 Fertilise 

Fertilise Citrus trees and top up mulch.

#4 Tomato tip 

Tomatoes are fruiting, so keep watering consistent to reduce the likelihood of blossom end rot.
