Tony's tip of the week

Home & Garden 13/10/2018

More care required this week.

Windy stormy weather can loosen ties of newly planted trees, so be sure to check them this week.

Some parts of the country are already drying out so check newly planted larger specimens and make sure the soil is damp.

You can check by pushing a bamboo cane into the soil beside the plant. Wait a moment, pull out and feel for cool dampness. If it’s so, then great, leave well alone.
