October Gardening

Judicious watering is obviously the name of the game in the current conditions to keep your plants at their best while being environmentally responsible and Catscapes landscapes can advise you on the best way forward to refurbish your garden into a more water wise unit without compromising on the look. Now is the time to consider installing or maintaining your irrigation system so that you can make the best use of the water available. Let Catscapes landscapes install the irrigation system and a grey water catchment system to create the garden of your dreams.


Now is the time to sow the seed of salad vegetables and maize in the open ground. Feed the roses at the end of the month once the main flowering is over. Feed your Irises as soon as the first buds form. Transplant your irises while flowering to sort out the colours. As soon as the first rains fall fertilise your lawns; and if you haven’t already, scarify them. Fertilise and water evergreen lawns which will require more attention during the early hot spell

Remove weeds before they have a chance to seed. Continue throughout Summer. Use a general herbicide on pathways and driveways.

Roses and fruit trees will start needing fungicides as the first rains fall or if there is high humidity.

Let Catscapes landscapes create the garden of your dreams this Summer.
