Garden Update 2012 April Week 4.

The second half of summer and all of autumn so far has been very dry but not really very hot. In the face of a forecast of rain for this week I set about the task of fertilizing the garden.

The fruit trees were all fed with Complete Mineral Mix to set them up for winter and early spring. The rest of the garden was treated with Blood and bone with added Sulphate of Potash.

The rain duly fell, if not in the quantities hoped for, yet there is a forecast for more during the week so it will all end okay.

Bulbs in the dry garden have poked their shoots above the ground and with their feed of Blood and Bone I hope to see a great display this spring.
