Planning your planting

By Peter Langdale

THE drop in night temperatures and shorter days is becoming more noticeable and keeping the garden watered is becoming less of a chore.

It means now is a good time for planting; be it a fruit tree, conifer or rose bush.

If you are looking for something to plant, browse through our complete range of trees, bushes and hardy plants – we also have bulbs in stock for autumn planting such as hyacinth, crocus and tulips.

As the days shorten and we move indoors how about some aromatic or culinary plants to freshen the kitchen and enrich the winter soups and stews.

No doubt the first rains will appear within the next week or so and our old friends the weeds will become a nuisance in the garden.

Try getting on top of all your basic garden and lawn maintenance before the weather breaks.

Whether it be weeds, dead leaves, or kitchen vegetable waste, keep your compost heap going and in a few months time you should have a suitable compost for mulching.

October is a special month for us, as once again we have pleasure in hosting an exhibition by the Vinuela Sew and Sews, in aid of charity.

Why not come along and help us beat our previous total of €1,200, as we try to help people less fortunate than ourselves.
