Early Autumn Activity

30-9-2019

While the young Braeburn apple tree continues to stretch towards the sky, Aphrodite’s Gardens put the newly learned skills into action and sowed wildflower meadows in two gardens. Two weeks later the first seedlings were already showing!

Bulb planting has also started. www.futureforests.ie and www.fruithillfarm.com have a good choice of (organic) bulbs on offer and deliver fast and hassle-free.

Seed saving is in full swing. The seeds of summer flowers are safely dried and stored for next year, while tree seeds are only starting to ripen.

To find out how to make your garden more pollinator-friendly, take a look at the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan at https://pollinators.ie/ . Lots of information to be found here!
