It’s hard to imagine at this time of year what the garden will look like when all the leaves are back on the trees, the shrubs are flowering, the grass is green and lush and the sun is shining.
However, you can be thinking about how to achieve this.
If you’re fed up with your grass never quite looking the way you want it, you keep buying lawn seed and fertiliser from the garden centre and you leave it in the shed not too sure what to do with it. Why not come along this Saturday, March 14, to Suntrap Garden and find out the correct ways to look after your grass. It’s a practical workshop showing you what to do and not do. It starts at 10.00 am and finishes at 12 noon. It only costs £6.00, less than yet another box of fertiliser. If you’re interested give John a call on 0131 331 7283 or email him, firstname.lastname@example.org.
