SEPTEMBER - Celebrating all things flowers this month


Weddings and wonders begin in earnest. Flowers flourish and there is a frenzy in the air as the new season activates our souls and reawakens our spirit. Smell the roses, walk barefoot on the grass and delight in nature’s simple gifts – flowers.


Feed fruit trees with a balanced all-purpose fertiliser. Feed roses with Sudden Impact. Plant summer vegetables you are raising yourself from seed into egg cartons or peat pots and transplant into the garden once frosts are over.


Try cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, or if you want to experiment, try the ‘three sisters’ method of companion for planting climbing beans with sunflowers and squash. Silverbeet, lettuce, radish, spring onion and carrots can all be sown directly in situ.


Repot indoor plants and cymbidium orchids. Remove winter veg that have finished cropping and dig any peas and broad beans back into the soil to enrich. Pop in stakes for you tomatoes and climbing beans. Plant up a herb garden and mulch with WHOFLUNGDUNG by Neutrog which is biologically activated and weed free.
