Spring is here

Bird song is everywhere and the

warmer days are enticing us outside

to enjoy the sunshine and wander

our garden.

Some fruit trees have already

blossomed, others are yet to put on

a show while buds and leaves are

forming on many deciduous trees.

In the vegetable garden, if not

already sown, now is the time to

put in beans, beetroot, bok choi,

broad beans, broccoli, cabbage,

carrots, celery, chilli, garlic, kohlrabi,

leeks, lettuces, onions, parsnips,

peas, pumpkin, radishes, rocket and

silverbeet.

This is also a good time to prepare

asparagus, rhubarb and strawberry

beds and if thinking about growing

Jerusalem artichokes consider

putting these in large containers to

restrict their potential to spread. The

Christmas crop of potatoes should

be in the ground or if short on space,

try growing this vegetable in a large

bin using sawdust or pea straw

instead of soil though do keep up

the watering.

Traditionally, it is better to hold

off on the capsicums, courgettes,

cucumbers, egg plants, sweet corn,

tomatoes, yams, until the chance

of a late frost is over, around early

November unless you have a

greenhouse. Leave brussel sprouts

too until December when you can

also sow swede.

Once the spring tidy up of the

various garden beds with mulching

and vegetable sowing all done, sit

back and enjoy your garden. Weed

when needed, fertilise from time to

time, spray insecticide or weed killer

only when needed and keep up a

regular watering regime to give your

plants the best chance.

Do you want to save time

money and water?

Permanent protection

from the weather

Over summer we relax and

entertain outdoors; an experience

made more pleasant with an

Archgola Outdoor Shelter fitted with

café curtains for a weatherproof

room when needed.

“Our awnings, canopies and shade

solutions are engineer designed

and constructed from powder

coated galvanised steel. They can

be fixed to a deck, concrete patio

or concreted into the ground,”

advises Chris Thorndycroft who with

wife Beve, are licensee holders

of Archgola’s Central Canterbury

branch.

Their shelters are manufactured

to suit any environment, and

professionally fitted by trained and

experienced installers who work

across the region.

Time

for a garden spring-clean

Spring is here! With the longer days

comes longer grass and more time in

the garden.

Our contractors have noticed

some enthusiastic gardeners have

organics bins that are over the

weight restriction for collection.

The organics bins can take a

maximum weight of 60kg – that’s a

lot of garden waste! If your bin is too

heavy the contractor will place a

tag on the bin informing you why it

was not emptied.

To ensure your bin gets emptied

every time make sure that it’s not too

heavy and that the lid can close.

You can take excess organic waste

to the Pines Resource Recovery

Park at 183 Burnham School Road.

Organic waste is $107 per tonne to

dispose of.

On Saturday 28 October a garden

and scrap metal Waste Disposal Day

is being held at Hawkins Pit, Darfield

between 10am–4pm. Garden waste

will be $5 per car, $10 per ute or

single axle trailer, and $15 per twin

axle trailer. Cash only. Proceeds from

garden waste fees will be donated

to the Malvern Lions Club.

Visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/pines for

more information about organic

waste disposal.

Experts in landscaping

Organic bin tips

To ensure your organics wheelie bin is fully emptied every time:

Keep the bin weight reasonable. If you find it difficult

to move the bin, then you may find it exceeds the

truck lifting limits and could be left behind unemptied.

Keep organic bin contents loose. Don’t compact your

material by standing on it (it may not come out when

tipped by the truck).

Place weeds, branchy material or newspaper at the

bottom of the bin before filling with grass clippings.

This reduces the likelihood of the grass clippings

getting stuck.

Organics only! Absolutely NO plastic bags!

No metals, glass, rocks or stones, bricks or

rubbish please. These cause considerable

damage to the organics shredder.

Put flax and cabbage leaves in your rubbish.

Make sure your bin is not over full – the lid

must close.

If wanting a new or enhanced

garden, Revive Landscaping can

help. They specialise in all aspects

of landscaping and love garden

makeovers.

constructing decks, fences, water

features, pergolas, irrigation systems,

lighting and artistic features, they

also revamping gardens, working

paradise,” says owner Ross Legg.

SELWYN selwyn GARDENING gardening GUIDE guide SPRING spring 201717 | 7

LANDSCAPING IN

CANTERBURY FOR

OVER 30 YEARS

The latest trend in raised planter

boxes is here to stay.

Ideal for small garden spaces like

vegetable plots and patio beds,

knee high planter boxes make

weeding easy, especially for those

who have back or bending issues.

With a seat on top, one can sit while

tending the garden.

Often constructed from

Macrocarpa wood or concrete

block, many plants grow well in

raised planter boxes, which are ideal

for lettuces, tomatoes, lemons and

herbs. Formal planting can create

a screen for privacy while standards

such as Bay or Lemon trees provide

a focal point of interest.

For assistance in creating planter

boxes in your garden, call Evergreen

Landscapes Ltd on 03 349 2929.

They are experts in all forms of

landscaping and only too happy

to help out with advice and

construction.

Spring Tasks

Healthy soil makes for healthy plants. Compost, fertiliser and mulch are essentials when

it comes to creating and maintaining a healthy growing environment for whatever you

are planting. Add these now if you haven’t done so yet.

If you are sowing seeds, make sure you have choose ones that will grow in our climate

zone, and follow the sowing instructions. This will help to get the best results from the

seeds.

Veggie gardens are hugely popular. Whether they are raised beds, planters, pots or

containers, Intelligro Veggie Garden Mix is ideal. It is packed with nutrients that your

veggies will thrive on through the growing season. It is available in bulk, as well as in

35L bags. This is our top seller!

If you are looking to plant tomatoes, wait until Show Weekend unless you have a

glasshouse. These hungry plants require a lot of nutrients through their growing season,

and continue to need it even when they have started to produce their fruit. Using a top

quality potting mix like Patio Plus, or Tomato Mix is essential for a bountiful crop. A

topdressing fertiliser is on the must have list as well. You can use Intelligro Tomato

Fertiliser or Top Dressing Fertiliser depending on where you have planted the tomatoes.
