It's time to think about Autumn planting!!
Now November has arrived, it's time to start thinking about Autumn, and what plants and flowers will see you through the cooler months leading on into Winter (sorry to mention the "W" word!)
So, it's time to be pro-active and start thinking about your plants for Autumn! Here at Abbey, we already have in some lovely Violas and Pansies, that'll shrug off even the coldest weather, and will look perky all year round - my ones from last year are still going strong a year later!

Try Growing Success Soil Improver!
There's nothing worse than the prospect of back-breaking digging, so this new "No Dig" soil improver is the answer to your prayers! You simply spread it to a depth of approximately 5 cm and then sit back and let the worms break it down and pull it down into your soil! This is the easiest way to improve the structure of either clay or sandy soil and add essential nutrients. Many of us in the local area have heavy clay soils, so this soil improver should help improve the texture of your soil. A mulch also helps retains moisture during the warm summer months.
We have 50 litre bags for £3.99, which covers one square metre, at the recommended depth of 5cm.
Terrific Terracotta! All shapes and sizes!
Just look at the HUGE range of Terracotta pots that we now have in! All shapes and sizes, from small pots and saucers that are suitable for herbs, right up to enormous planters suitable for large shrubs or small trees such as Acers. Also shallow, round bowls that suit Alpine plants, and ones with many holes that you can plant Strawberry plants, or Lobelia in! Truly a pot for every occasion! Some are already planted up for you, ready to take away today!
Use Provado to beat the bugs!
Now that your garden is established you can sit back and relax, right?!! NO! All the hungry, nasty beasties are lining up to nibble at your plants, and suck the stems dry!! BUT, you can FIGHT BACK - with PROVADO products! Provado Ultimate Bug Killer comes in a one litre, ready to use spray (£4.99). It works on contact, and systemically, which means it is absorbed into the plant and keeps on working, for up to 6 weeks' control. It's suitable for use on all outdoor ornamental plants, selected vegetables, fruit trees and bushes, and is effective against greenfly, blackfly, whitefly, mealybug, thrips, leaf hopper and lily beetle. We also stock Provado Ultimate Bug Killer as a concentrate, to dilute with water and mix up yourself - a 400 ml bottle makes up to 27 litres.
Also very popular is the Provado Vine Weevil killer, which gives up to 4 months' protection against Vine Weevil in ornamental container plants. Applied as a soil drench, it targets the grubs in the soil to prevent them hatching into adult Vine Weevil. It also has the added bonus of controlling greenfly, blackfly, whitefly, woolly aphids and scale insects systemcially for up to 4 months. Vine Weevil are becoming an increasing problem in pots and containers - if a plant looks sick, check the compost for Vine Weevil grubs that eat the roots.
