Garden Notes – Frost!

Garden Club The Villager

Perhaps this is the time to buy more of the ones that flower on new wood as well as old. The Endless Summer range will do this. Hostas are limp and even the really tough bergenias suffered.

Farm Notes

The Villager

The hoped for rain has arrived and crops, grass, flowers and planted vegetables will be transformed. In April we recorded about 18 mm early in the month from a Saturday storm and then a few millimetres just before the month’s end. Now the plants have the moisture in the rooting zone and will take up the nutrients. The warmer days of March and early April resulted in crop growth stages being about 12 days ahead of a normal season but the cold winds of late April slowed growth to a normal year. Growth stages are determined by dissecting the plants and identifying the growth stage from sometimes tiny embryonic leaves or ears – patience and a good blade are required. ...
