Although the long hot summer is over, if you’re not careful, this winter bounty can be lost and it may set up a whole heap of trouble for your garden. Chris shares valuable tips on how to keep your garden healthy this winter.

  • Water repellency is your biggest hurdle, use a good quality wetting agent and make sure you activate it.

  • Cover any bare soil with a good layer of mulch. This is going to stop the rain washing away your soil and that mulch is going to capture moisture returning nutrients to your soil.

  • Finally, it is time for planting. So start planning where you want to designate plants in your garden.
