  • This month at Starke Ayres Garden centres we celebrate Arbour week, Spring and our very own “Sharing is Caring” month.
     
  • Join us every weekend for the month of September and plant up a FREE colourful pot with your  child, parent, a friend or a loved one.  Look out for our  “Caring is sharing” potting station in our store.
     
  • Plant summer vegetable varieties in your veggie patch such as Chillies, Peppers, Tomatoes, Patty Pans, Baby Sweetcorn, Cucumber, Squash, Pumpkin,  Beans and Brussel Sprouts. For the Seed enthusiast we offer a wide range of Starke Ayres Vegetable Seed to choose from such as the Low Carb Mix.
     
  • Planting a hanging basket, a first in the Western Cape, has never been easier and more fun (photo clip at the top of the page). If you’re short on space in your garden, hanging baskets and pots are the ideal addition to your edible garden. Add Palm Peat to pots to help with the water retention.
     
  • Deadhead your pansies and violas, so that they can continue to flower right into summer. Continue feeding with an Organic Liquid fertiliser such as Sea Secret.
     
  • Clivias, commonly known as bush lilies, bring spectacular colour to any shady area of your garden during the month of September. They are not just easy to care for but are indigenous and waterwise. Rhaphiolepsis is a tough, wind resistant, low maintenance shrub and prolifically blooms in late September and October.
     
  • Plant a fruit  tree during Arbour month. Fruit trees not only offer shade, but will reward you with fruit during season. A Lemon or Olive tree is a 12 month asset to all gardens and is easy to grow in containers.
     
  • Lawns require a boost into spring. Talborne fertilisers are organic and slow release and only needs to be applied 3 monthly.  All other chemical options should be applied 6 weekly. If your lawn is sparse now is a good time to plant grass plugs and lightly top dress with one of our weed free lawndressings.
     
  • Have a look at our spring promotions which will help you grow your rand.

 

 

GARDEN CHAT ON FMR

 

The Starke Ayres Garden Chat on Fine Music Radio (FMR) is a comment on a more natural approach to gardening. It covers all aspects of everyday gardening practice with the emphasis on soil management, utilizing the correct plant material and following an environmental code of conduct. The aim is to bring both garden and gardener into the natural realm. It is important for us to know the impact our gardens are having on the environment as a whole, so that we can play a positive role.

QUALITY PRODUCTS AND SERVICE

STARKE AYRES has been a supplier of quality seed, seedlings, trees, shrubs, pot plants, bulbs and a variety of gardening accessories to the gardening public of Cape Town for well over a century.

Aware of the fact that climatic and soil conditions in the Western Cape vary greatly from those in the summer rainfall areas of the north, we have gone to great lengths to identify plants that are particularly well adapted to the Mediterranean climate of the Western Cape.

In the garden centre plants are displayed in such a manner as to make the shopping experience an easy and a pleasant one. Customers need to know how adaptable plants are, their growing conditions and how they can be used for maximum impact in the garden.
