LTT Notes 13-6-2012

 

The wet and windy conditions of the week starting 4th June was totally against us and our C.E.S.  workers in terms of  work. However we were lucky that Tuesday morning stayed dry and the morning was spent in the Millennium park cutting the box hedging, weeding and tidying up the various planting areas and sweeping.Hopefully the coming week will be better.

ECO TIP OF THE WEEK

No more than ourselves plants all need a pick me up every now and again There are a number of ways to condition and improve your soil including compost, seaweed dust and well rotted manure. All of those release nutrients slowly allowing the plant to avail of the nutrients as they need them. So why buy commercial liquid fertilisers when you can make your as such liquid feeds are taken up immediately by the plant giving them an extra boost. Some recipes next week.
