Spring has sprung and we’re so excited, we wet our plants! 🙂 Gardeners in KZN can visit the show for major garden inspiration, and then implement the following in their gardens this month:
- Plant sweet potatoes and seedlings of green peppers, eggplants and parsley.
- Plant a row of young Cupressus macrocarpa ‘Gold Crest’ for that gorgeous green and gold flush. Stake their main stems well and straight, and keep on removing all the side growth from the bottom two thirds of the plant. As soon as a height of about 1,2m is reached, you can start shaping the top growth into balls. You will soon have your own golden-yellow lollypops.
- Create a pretty spring border with the following indigenous flowering plants: gazanias, arctotis, blue felicias, scabiosas, and Plectranthus ‘Mona Lavender’.
- Don’t forget to check for algae and moss on paving. Scrub down with a solution of copper sulphate or use a moss killer.
