Autumn has arrived in all its glory and nature is going into a period of rest.
Unfortunately it does not mean that gardeners can also take a break – there are many gardening tasks to be done to ensure a colourful winter and spring garden. Lifting and dividing, sowing and planting and cleaning and feeding should keep you busy during the month of April.
We’re planting … Nemesia ‘Nesia Denim’, which is fragrant with large, dark blue blooms. It pairs well with other perfumed autumn and spring annuals, such as pansies, alyssum and stocks. With its open, semi-upright growth (30cm high and wide), it can be used as a soft
border for other plants with broad, upright or dense foliage. Use it in containers, hanging baskets and as a bedding plant.
Plant in full sun, in moist, well-drained soil. Regular watering and feeding encourages continuous blooms. Extend its flowering into summer with ample water during hot periods.
