Caring for your new garden.

• Keep all exposed soil well mulched to minimize water and nutrient loss by the sun. The mulch (3-5cm of leaves, dried grass cuttings and soft plant material) eventually turns into compost as added bonus. • Do not till the beds. It disturbs the beneficial micro-organisms of the soil. Loosen slightly if compacted after applying fertilizer and slightly dig in the yearly dose of compost if still warm. • For the first month, water daily and water trees deeply twice a week. After that, generally water less frequently, but for longer to encourage deep rooting of the plants, making them more drought-resistant. • Dead-head spent flowers to encourage more flowering • Loosely stake young trees between two stakes to allow them movement .. • Prune when necessary, but beware that over- pruning limits flowering. • Compost yearly and fertilize every 4 - 6 months: o April: 2.3.2 for strong root formation over the winter months o August:3.1.5 and 5.1.5 for beds and 2.3.2 for lawn o December: 3.1.5, 5.1.5 for beds to ensure sustained strong growth, healthy foliage and profuse flowering and 2.3.2 for lawns
