It’s been a while since we’ve had a garden update. Here are some pics and tips. Unfortunately not long after these photos were taken we have a few casualties from the 43 degree heat weekend that recently passed. Even our mature hedges got burnt 😦
In summary, learning’s are:
- Ensure you leave adequate space otherwise it will create more maintenance when your plant out grows the space.
- Ensure your new plants will not deprive the existing vegetation of sun when it grows. Otherwise expect some very sorry looking plants 😦 In other words be aware that your plants can change the micro environment.
- Think long term. Tough love is sometimes what is required. Prune back hard. If not, you just may have to do it a second time.
- Position plants in aspects that are suited to them. It makes a noticeable difference. If in doubt just test and try. If the plant looks sad, move it and see if it looks better elsewhere.
