Weekly Garden Checklist ...

Good Morning!
Here are just a few suggestions that you could be getting on with this week ...

1. Aphids - I know it's not the nicest topic to start off with, but now is the time to keep an eye out for Aphids! I've had a few instances recently where I've found quite a few clustering on my plants, especially my Dianthus and Fuchsia cuttings! As soon as you spot any squash them with your fingers or blast with some soapy water.

2. Feed - Plants such as Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camelia's would all benefit now from a feed right now with Ericaecous plant food. You can get this is both a granular or liquid form.

3. Hellebores - If you haven't done so already, cut away old leaf stems to prevent the spread of black spot.

4. Alpines & Succulents - Tidy and re - pot if needed any Alpines and Succulents, you can also give them a fresh top dressing to keep them looking their best.

Thanks for stopping by, don't forget you can find all the previous Checklists on the page tab above.
