This dry, blustery weather has been really tiresome, hasn't it?
It dries out our garden beds and lawns, and heats up our potted plants, leaving them looking straggly and dull.
But there are a few things you can do to help your potted plants through this punishing summer heat. And they will serve your plants well as the months get colder too.
The best way to get your garden thriving and maximise the warmth and rain provided by Mother Nature, is to mulch. There are so many types of mulch to choose from, and it is important that you pick one that is best for your particular project.
Unscreened sand is soil that has been excavated from dig outs around the Sunshine Coast, and is ideal to use for levelling or filling in low areas. This soil is quite clean, but has not been broken down or sifted in any way and may have roots, weeds, sticks and rocks in it.
Hurray for the rain! And now we can talk about rain gardens, and how they can make an attractive decorative addition to your garden, as well as conserve precious water.
