Presenter: Trevor Cochrane

It’s an interesting time of the year in Trevor’s garden and it’s all happening. There are a lot of things to do and a lot of things he would love to show you.

  • If you haven’t trimmed your roses yet, now is the time. After pruning, give them a feed. Trevor uses the soil fertilizer Troforte M, which feeds the plant with a special blend of microbes through the soil.
  • Check out the weird and wonderful Custard Apple. The young tree is already producing fruit and will do until October. Trevor loves the sweetness and healthiness of this fruit.
  • Custard Apple is also easy to grow in a sunny position with free-draining soil. They also say Custard Apple is more the 40,000 times more effective than certain types of chemotherapy!
  • Did you know ants are the key to a healthy crop in Australia and will help to control pests? Let them help you pollinate your Custard Apple trees for you!
