Finally, the cold has gone and our days are quickly warming up. Peeking out the early morning window and seeing the crisp, clear morning light and the rising sun, makes us all want to get up and get busy outdoors. Whether it’s to just play with the kids and dogs, have friends over for a braai or work in the garden, everyone get’s an extra spring in their step this time of year.
We have found the buzz to be growing in the garden centre, and not only here, but all over Polokwane. Everyone is positive, has inspiration and is geared to go! So much happens in the garden this time of year, it’s the time gardener’s plant with great conviction.
- Citrus psylla – found most commonly on lemons – remove all ripe fruit and spray with Koinor
- Weed growth on lawns – depending on the type of weeds, one can either spray Lawn weeder or alternatively pull out manually
- White fly – very common on fuchsia and duranta this time of year, spay with a mix of Efekto Oleum and Mahkro Garden Care
- Aphids and pests on herbs – try Ludiwgs insect spray or alternatively spray with Oleum
Even though the experts say we are about to have a great rainy season, it is important to think of ‘tomorrow’.
Revamping existing dry beds by planting up with colourful vygies, aloes and succulents not only saves water but also saves time due to them having very little or no maintenance.
A waterwise garden is one of the most colourful and rewarding winter and spring gardens.
