Feed & Fert
Watering, weeding, mulching and feeding are the most useful jobs you can be doing this month in your garden. In fact February is 'Feed n Fert' month, so grab a good quality granular fertiliser and feed all the plants in your garden. It might be wise to wait for a day that we are expecting rain, so that the fertiliser can be watered in well.
Care For Your Citrus
Get your fruit trees ready for winter. Feed citrus trees with a citrus fertiliser for best results. Water in well.
Water Your Feijoas
If you have Feijoas, keep them well watered to ensure big juicy fruit. Put a bucket in the shower to preserve water and use this instead of the hose.
Summer is the perfect time to trim your hedges, Buxus & topiaries. Trim on a fine day, and spray buxus hedging especially with a copper spray afterwards. Your garden & any pots will need a bit of attention after the holidays so feed with a good quality fertiliser such as Nitrophoska.
February is our driest month so water every couple of days to give your gardens & pots a good drink. Watering also activates the fertilisers.
