Gardening by Month
The cold of winter starts to bite this month. Day length shrinks to the lowest levels of the year. Aloes and succulents come to the party and brighten up the landscape. They also provide much needed food resources for birds and insects during the winter month. Feeding and watering birds in the garden is welcomed by our feathered friends during the lean winter period. June is still a great month to be out in the garden; the daytime conditions are near perfect weather. Click below for all our June gardening tips and advise:
On the second Tuesday of every month, Gerald Schofield hosts informative, interesting garden talks covering a wide variety of subjects. July’s Garden Talk will cover how to prune roses, fruit trees and other garden plants. Join us at Blackwood’s Home of Gardening on Tuesday, 12th of July at 9:00am for 9:30am. There’s always question and answer time at the end, as well as a chance to win one of several lucky draw prizes! Entrance fee is R20-00, which is donated to Msunduzi Hospice.
