National Gardening Month

Celebrate National Garden Month with Weston Sawmill

National Garden Month takes place throughout April and it’s the perfect time to transform the look of your garden.

Weston Sawmill has a wide range of gardening tools that suit beginners right through to seasoned gardeners. Winter can be a tough time for gardeners but with more sunshine and the temperatures slowly rising, it’s the best time to get back out into the garden.

Top Tips for New Gardeners

If you’ve never considered gardening before now is the perfect time to start, here are some tips to get you started –

Keep it Simple – Gardening can become an investment so start small with planting tomatoes and peppers that will provide a bit of colour in your garden plus they can be used in meals.

Know Your Soil – Do some research beforehand to find out the best kind of soil to use for planting, as not every plant or tree requires the same kind of soil. Areas with clay soils don’t drain well and your plants will have wet roots in rainy weather. Sandy soils drain easily, but in droughts, the plants require more water unless they are resistant to droughts.

Raised beds – Weston Sawmill has various sizes of raised beds in stock which will save on weeding your grounds and are perfect for gardeners with mobility issues.

Create Your Own Outdoor Paradise – National Garden Month isn’t just about planting; you could consider adding decorative features to your garden such as lanterns to brighten up your paths and decking. We have a wide range of wooden and metal lanterns in all sizes that will suit any style of garden.
