City Farm Nursery
Spring is here!
We are so excited we wet our plants!
Spring is our favourite season in the nursery. Everything starts to thrive again and we love to watch all the flowers bloom while watching the bees, butterflies and other pollinators delicately dancing around us.
With the intense heat just around the corner it’s time to mulch mulch mulch! Mulching means less watering and also helps maintain the health of the soil. We have sugar cane and lucerne mulch in the nursery for you - ready to go in to the garden ASAP.
This month try sowing seeds for tomatoes, eggplant, capsicums, cucumbers, pumpkins, watermelons, beans, snakebeans, rosella, okra, and corn. Otherwise, we have some seedlings in the Nursery for you propagated by our very own Farm team.
Look out for aphids, scale, mealy bug and citrus leaf miner as it warms up. Be sure to provide enough airflow by removing unnecessary branches and stems from your fruit trees and plants. This will help control them breeding. Regularly check underneath the leaves of your trees and stems of the plants and remove them while they are in smaller numbers before they take over. You can wipe them off your plants with a wet cloth or you can use a dish soap and water tonic or an organic eco oil, if it gets too much. Remember to spray early in the morning, or late in the afternoon if spraying with oil otherwise the leaves can suffer and burn.
Thank you to everyone who has dropped off jars and nursery pots for us to reuse – we are very grateful.
Happy gardening everyone and we hope to see you at City Farm Nursery soon.
