April Tips in The Garden

In the flower garden
Plant lily bulbs now in pots! If you want to get ahead with your summer lily display, start planting now! I’d always recommend planting in pots. You can simply move them around the patio or into gaps in your borders as they come into flower! Use a good, multi-purpose compost and half-fill a container at least 30cm (12”) in diameter and is sufficient for 3 bulbs. Cover with more compost and water in. Once the plants begin to shoot, move them to a sunny position. Feed with a liquid plant feed each weekly from the beginning of summer.

Box is Back

Start Planting Buxus Again
Once a beautiful feature in many UK gardens, whether used as a low dividing hedge, styled into topiary shapes or simply as a feature bush; box bush declined due to the box bush fungus cylindrocladium buxicola which decimated buxus plants throughout Europe. Read on to find out how you can once again grow the beautiful boxwood shrub without fearing box blight, thanks to TopBuxus…
TopBuxus is Europes largest Box grower, based in the Netherlands they grow 12,000,000 yes that’s twelve million boxwood shrubs each year.
