A few points to remember:

Take advantage of the cooler conditions to carry out landscaping such as tidying your paving from weeds before they set in. The Ryset Long Handled Paving Knife is a fabulous tool for the job and saves your back!

Don’t forget to move your indoor plants away from cold window position and regenerate the soil to get them through the less active months with Munash Organics Indoor Plant Soil Food.

Winter pruning is a fabulous opportunity to enhance the health of your plants by removing dead branches and minimising stress. By doing so, you reduce the plant’s nutrient requirements and promote healthier growth.  Check out our Guide to Buying Secateurs and if you have trees to cut back, our Guide to Pruning Trees for getting the right tool for the job
