This is a pesky fungus that is becoming evident in July as apples start to show signs with scab marks. This particular fungus can survive the winter and therefore your apple trees need a proactive approach to remove this blight. Pruning out blistered twigs, fallen leaves and infected fruit will help reduce the infections in the next growing season. If you want to go down a chemical control route, current fungicides are not recommended for consumption and are best avoided. However, our Healthy Garden Fruit and Veg Biostimulant (link) provides an additional defence against disease and damage. By boosting the tree’s ability to efficiently perform natural processes, Healthy Garden Fruit and Veg Biostimulant will help your apple tree grow resilience against apple scab. Next year’s crop will be bigger and better!
Did you look after your lawn in the sweltering summer we had this year? A combination of dry weather, more frequent use and therefore more frequent mowing will have meant many lawns may not be looking in peak condition. Healthy Garden Lawn Biostimulant (link) will help prevent this next year. On application it will improve the development of grassroots, meaning it has better access to nutrients and water, and will recover quicker from harsh weather conditions. Those yellow patches left from paddling pools will bounce back much faster.
Autumn is a lovely season but does create lots of work in the garden. Why is it important to clear fallen leaves? And when there seems to be so many. It’s important these are swept away so they don’t hide any pesky slugs and snails and to allow light to get to your lawn. There is an incentive, you can use them to make leaf mould for the garden. Once you’ve collected those leaves, shred them down, and keep them for rotting down into soil conditioner for next year. Hard work now, but your plants will thank you in the spring.
