Minute Moments Pottering

Nothing is particularly hard
if you divide it into small jobs.

- Henry Ford

Bed By Bed

When your garden design revolves around individual beds then maintainance is easy.
Take it one bed at a time...
  • Weed the bed
  • Top up the mulch
  • Feed the plants if necessary either with a purchased fertiliser or liquid feed.
  • Remove dead foliage and flowers to prevent disease build up.
  • Tie up sprawling vegetables to supports or guide them off pathways when they get too vigorous.
  • Pinch out growing tips or flowers where necessary for continued growth/harvest.

This only takes a short while and next time you have some free time move on to the next bed.
