WELCOME TO APRIL...
With all the public holidays, Easter excitement and gallivanting celebrations that April holds, the garden may need our attention. Spend some quality time among your plants, restoring both the garden and yourself. April is a great time to relax and potter in the fresh air of the garden before winter sets in.
Here are some suggestions on what to do in your garden this month:
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.
