Garden care, About Blooming Time

Welcome to my first blog. Somewhat an overwhelming idea, we are coming in line and on line to showcase many things that I hope you find useful. This will be the start of many blogs, where we will hopefully impart some great information, advice and ideas on how best to look after your garden, among other things.

Over the years, I obtained a Diploma in Parks & Gardens, as well as a Degree in Environmental Horticulture, from Melbourne University. What better way to put all that knowledge to good use, than to start your own business, Right?! I started the company “About Blooming Time” just over 10 years ago. It’s a rewarding job, being able to be outside all the time, as well as show people what a little bit of TLC can do for your garden.

Graduation Day

This week I thought I would discuss “Garden Care”.People ask me all the time: Why & What do I need to do to look after my garden?And are so overwhelmed at the prospect.It’s not so difficult, but with a bit of guidance any apprentice green thumb will get there. The why is because gardens are like people.If you don’t eat the right things, or rug up during winter, you are going to get sick. Same goes for your garden, you need to give it a good feed (fertilise) and some warm clothes (mulch) and a bit of a haircut (tidy up lawn and roses) to keep it looking and feeling good.

Maintaining your lawns

Driving around the neighbourhood there are so many houses that I notice are in desperate need of care. Two weeks before the end of every season, everyone should look at fertilising, mulching and pruning (roses especially).

Finished Job

Now that we have hit winter, it’s imperative that all these things are done to ensure that your garden is taken care of during the cold, rainy winter months, as a result will guarantee the rewards come spring time.

So don’t be afraid, grab your gloves, get set and goÃ?Â?Ã?¢Ã?Â?Ã?Â?Ã?Â?Ã?¦Or call me at About Blooming Time, and Ill grab my gloves and do all the work for you. Have a great day. Mark Johnson-Turner
