Plants For The Season

Autumn

Salvias are a poplular perennial to plant now for colour.
Bulbs such as nerines, daffodils, tulips will add colour to your garden beds and pots.
Sasanqua camelias can be used as a feature shrub or hedge.
Established deciduous trees should be looked out for now to take note of the various colours you may want in your garden. Order them from the Nurseryman so you are ready to plant out in late winter or early spring.

Tips and Traps

Tips

The Nurseryman welcomes tips and traps from customers. Please give them to him by emailing us and we will list them here

  • Look around your surrounding suburbs and towns when planning a new garden. Identify what grows well and bring your list to the Nurseryman to provide advice and source those plants.
  • Don’t over feed your compost worms in winter – they aren’t hungry!
  • Plant a variety of lettuce every 4 – 6 weeks and only pick the leaves for a textured and colourful lettuce salad. There are so many varieties now, that even in winter, you can have your own supply rather than buying a mix in bags from the supermarket.
  • Do you have slippery garden paths? Mix equal parts (say 1 cup) of methylated spirits and white vinegar to a bucket of soapy water in a spray bottle. Spray on small areas and scrub with a brush. Leave for a few minutes and rinse off with clean water.
