Feedback: Four Stars Our Of Five
Response: Thanks for your feedback. I hope everything was OK with your garden shed direct from us. If you have any concerns please let me know. Regards, Robin
With the latest inclement weather this a reminder of what we should had done to our garden tools and lawnmowers prior to the cold weather arriving. I'm sure it's the last thing on your mind but come Spring and when you come to dig out your garden tools from your garden shed and come to cut the grass for the 1st time you will be pleased you gave it some thought.
A while ago recommendations of what you should do was published by many experts, including RatedPeople.com. They suggested strongly that the Autumn would have been the best time to seed a new garden lawn whilst the ground was still warm. This would allow the seeds to germinate in the garden and enable the young grass plants to gain a hold. If you didn't do it at that time then you will need to wait until the first signs of Spring are here.
It was also recommended that plants are protected from frost, so that they are not attacked by fungal diseases. If any signs of fungal or mildew appear then the affected areas should be removed and burnt. Do not put on the garden compost heap as this could spread to healthy plants. If you have not protected your plants then it is not too late to do so. Put them in a shady place or in your garden sheds. Alternatively you could cover them with plastic bags leaving the ground around the base of the plants open so water can still get into the soil. Ensure you remove all weeds from around the plants so they can't take control in your garden. October was normally the latest month where you would normally do this but this year we have been lucky with some of the warmest Novembers and Decembers on record so you may still have a late opportunity to do this protective work, however, January may have a sting in its tail.
By making the most of this extra opportunity and completing these small jobs you can be sure come the Spring that you will have a head start so you can enjoy the garden and the delights of the summer. It always seems a long way just after the Christmas decorations are put away but before you know the Spring will be here. With Easter also being early this year then before you know it we will be out in the garden enjoying the sunshine and digging the barbecue out of your garden shed.
You also need to ensure that your garden shed is securely locked in Sutton Surrey as the darker nights make it easier for burglars to gain access unnoticed. Don't lose your valuable garden tools, lawnmower and bikes from your shed for the sake of a new lock for the shed door.
Have you cleaned your garden tools ready for the Spring or do you worry about that when the Spring comes? Also Easter being early makes me think again - why does the date of Jesus' death change every year when Christmas is always the same date. Why do you think this and does it matter?
