As many of my readers know February is not a month I consider as part of the garden calendar, it is a month when nothing really happens in the garden as if Mother Nature is undecided as to when spring should start. As they are not as active at this time of year, weeds that is, it might be a good time to ask ourselves the question, what defines a weed, with time on our hands, we can then go out in the garden and look for some!

The parties are over; its time to call it a day to get started in the garden with a plan of action to keep ahead of the game. Its time to try out the Christmas gifts and see the improvement that can be achieved with a little effort and modern tools! Walk the garden and make a to-do list for both hard and soft landscaped areas; be realistic, in the case of plant material if it is old and weather beaten for whatever reason,...

Some consider psychotherapy to be an application of science, but others claim it is an art.

Cost is becoming more of a factor in our daily lives and this also applies to the garden, especially as by its very nature it can be a growing expense. Costs include — if used — the landscape maintenance company and associated services,...

September, though still hot and humid is very much the last of the summer wine season with growth still active, however the usual problems are ever with us. Insect activity, fungal problems and storm damage are the primary areas of concern, with action being a priority in controlling the issues.

July should be a month to relax and enjoy the fruits of ones — or the landscapers — labours with a bounty of colour to enhance the garden and create a feeling of a job well done. Many aspects contribute to this palette of colour including the maintenance of the garden itself and the various plants found within its boundary. The use of plants can make or break a setting if they are not in harmony with their surroundings, so be...
