They say gardening is in the blood and nowhere is that more true than at Diaco’s Garden Nurseries – a group of family-run garden centers with a passionate team that live and breathe gardening.
We love new and interesting plants like these and today we show you something really different. If you love cherries (and there’s nothing quite like fresh Cherries!) these dwarf cherries have been released by PlantNet.
We’ve learnt so much about horticulture in recent years that goes against the learnings of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s when we thought it was all about applying minerals… yes, minerals are vitally important but a healthy soil, and healthy feeder roots is critically important!
Today Trevor wants to show you a backyard turf which has really got some great accolades from home gardeners since we started talking about it here around 15 years ago.
Landscaping is extremely rewarding but often involves physically intensive work, hours of digging, shoveling, lifting and handling of heavy materials. As much as a physical workout in the great outdoors has many health benefits, over doing it can cause strains and injuries, so getting the right balance and knowing your limit is key.
Nigel has come to Perth to visit his mate Jason who loves to work on his garden, it’s a work in progress, and today we’re going to make a few improvements...some of them much needed!
We often get asked questions about fruit quality and how to get larger, juicer plumper fruit. There’s two very important tricks: feeding, and pruning.
We talk a lot about herbs, veggies and fruit that have super qualities for better health but there’s a much bigger story at play you need to be conscious of… Trev explains.
When pruning sometimes it is better to use hedge shears as opposed to the trimmer because you get a much more accurate, cleaner cut. Today Nige shows us a hedge shear you need to add to your toolbox.
