Garden Tips March 2016

Reclaiming the garden!

The near record heat of February should begin to cool off in March, allowing gardeners to do some serious preparation for the lovely, long autumn season that Aucklanders traditionally enjoy.

PLANTING

PEST & DISEASE MANAGEMENT

The Lawn

With autumn around the corner and temperatures starting to cool down it is time to turn attention to your lawn. After a long hot summer even existing lawns need some TLC and the sooner you do this the better it will look for the autumn. This will able your lawn to go into the winter months looking lush and healthy. If your lawn is looking tired, yellow, full of weeds or just a little thin then it's time for an autumn renovation.
1. Fertilise with Prolawn Turfmaster Gold to encourage strong growth.
2. Spray weeds with Prolawn Broadsword selective weed killer to control broadleaf weeds.
3. About 3-4 weeks later scarify the lawn heavily to create a good seed bed.
4. Oversow bare or weak areas with the appropriate Prolawn seed blend and fertilise with Prolawn Turfmaster Starter.
