Make your garden your New Year's resolution – tips from the experts at our garden centre in Hampshire.
At our garden centre in Hampshire we have already started to work on our spring time plants and flowers and although the weather may not seem to be improving, now is the time to dust off your gardening gloves, peel yourself off the sofa and brave the outdoors!
If it is pouring with rain, why not shelter in the greenhouse? The experts at our garden centre in Hampshire suggest giving your greenhouse a good scrub before spring arrives. We sell a variety of garden disinfectant such as Growing Success Greenhouse Cleaner which is perfect for disinfecting the inside glass of your greenhouse. Make sure you ventilate the greenhouse for a few days before planting any seedlings.
The experts at our garden centre in Hampshire recommend clearing out the flower beds and borders, cutting back the old dead growth of deciduous grasses and herbaceous perennials and having a general tidy up in the garden.
With all the rain that we have been having, why not make the most of it by installing water butts in your garden? At our garden centre in Hampshire we sell a range of varied sized water butts from as little as £31.99!
Staff at our garden centre in Hampshire often recommend moving any deciduous plants at this time of year. If there has been a shrub such as honeysuckle or a vine such as a virginia creeper that you have wanted to move for a few years then now is the time to do it while it is in a dormant state.
It's not just the plants that need looking after at this time of year. We sell a variety of bird feed at our garden centre in Hampshire, including peanuts and seed & insect mix – which is a favourite amongst blue tits, sparrows and finches.
