Hints and tips from G-Scapes

Will we get plenty of April Showers in 2012? We certainly need them! Remember to give your plants water at this important time of year. Many plants are starting to show signs of life now and will benefit from additional water to help produce lots of flowers or crops of fruit.

Read on for some handy water saving products we stock here at the Plant Centre. 

Save Water, Save Money! 

Using water butts to gather rainwater is a great way of reducing your waterbills. We stock both regular & slimline water butts, as well as the stands for them too. When planting pots & baskets, add water storage crystals to thecompost to reduce watering. Applying a mulch of bark to borders will keepmoisture in & weeds down. Finally, adapt your garden by using drought tolerant plants like Hardy Geraniums, Succulents & Alpines. Ask our staff for help! 

New for 2012... 

After many customer requests, we will be shortly stocking Turf, available from the Easter Weekend (April 6th-9th). £3.99 per roll, which will cover approx 1square metre. The turf is cultivated Lawn Turf and will be available for preordering (with payment to be made at time of ordering). Don’t forget we also stock Lawn Seed, as well as many lawncare products including mosskiller, spreaders and lawn rakes for you to create the perfect lawn!
