Gardening is not cancelled, folks!
When the going gets tough, the tough get growing. We may be in quarantine, but our seeds are ready for liberation. There’s still time to plan ahead and get those winter vegetables in the ground. Grow your own stew with swiss chard, leeks, cabbage, beet, and turnips.
 Water Filtration System
Get the kids involved this World Water Day on the 22 March with some fun, hands-on science stuff. Here's a great water filtration experiment for the whole family. 

Hop-petti-hop in your garden

Get into the festive Easter spirit with our gorgeous rustic bunny. It’s a great project to keep little fingers busy outdoors while enjoying our beautiful Autumn weather. 


What to Plant

Garlic to the rescue! Boost your immune system and fight-off those germs with fresh garlic from your garden. Bulbs are readily available from your local GCA Garden Centre this time of year. 

What to Spray
Are white grubs feasting on your roots, leaving your lawn to wither and die? Try spraying your lawn with a registered insecticide and visit your local GCA Garden Centre for the best advice on lawn care.

What to Feed

Give your soil a nutritious boost and ensure your produce is loaded with the good stuff. We recommend mixing 3 to 5 cm of compost into the soil with a handful of bonemeal, or superphosphate, per square metre.


What to Pick

Start harvesting and preserving herbs for winter. Chop mint, parsley, basil and lemon balm. Place in an ice tray, fill with water and freeze. Aromatic herbs, like oregano, marjoram, thyme, sage, bay leaves and rosemary, are better air-dried. Continue to feed herbs monthly with a half-strength liquid fertiliser and water regularly.


With World Water Day just around the corner saving water doesn't need to be a drab. Save water with hydro-zoning by simply positioning your pots and plants according to their water requirements. Make the most of natural rainfall and get more bloom for your buck.
