The weather’s heating up, and now’s the time to prepare your garden so that it’s ready for all that an Australian summer can throw at it. Winter has well and truly gone, and spring is almost over too. So before you go racing down to the beach with the family, or head away for your Christmas break, here are a few summer gardening tips to help you be well prepared ahead of time:
- Before the weather gets too hot, the most important things you can do are finish off any spring pruning, fertilise, and mulch your garden.
- Spring is also a great time to start preparing your garden. It will ensure that your plants health is at its best so they can deal with the heat at the same time.
- Because our beautiful spring weather makes this the fastest-growing time of year for your plants, it’s also easy for things to rapidly get out of control. Mowing, watering, pruning, and keeping your garden in top shape are best attended to in the next few weeks so they don’t go into stress in the hotter months.
- Adding organic material to your soil to help hold and release water better than unprepared soil. Garden of Eve can prepare your garden beds so that they better utilise the water you give them and stay moist longer in the hot weather.
