Winter Garden Preparation

This year has passed swiftly, Summer is over and Autumn already halfway through. With less than 2 months until winter officially begins in Perth, now is the perfect moment to begin getting the garden ready for the upcoming colder season.



Even the smallest contribution can significantly improve the garden's condition, ensuring the plants' survival and growth during the colder months while potentially reducing future maintenance.

Here are some tips to help you prepare your garden:

  1. Clean up: Start by cleaning up any fallen leaves, dead plants, and debris from your garden beds. This will help prevent the build up of fungal diseases and pests over the winter months.

  2. Prune: Prune any dead or damaged branches from your trees and shrubs. This will not only make your garden look tidier but will also encourage healthier growth in the coming spring.

  3. Mulch: Apply a layer of mulch around your garden beds and trees to help retain moisture and insulate the soil. This will also help suppress weeds and protect the roots from frost.

  4. Fertilise: Apply a slow-release fertiliser to your lawn and garden beds before the first frost. This will help your plants stay healthy and strong through the winter months.

  5. Protect your plants: Cover any tender plants with a frost cloth or burlap to protect them from frost damage. You can also use a protective barrier around the base of your trees to prevent damage from rodents.

By following these tips, you can help prepare your garden for the cooler months and winter, and ensure that your plants are ready for the spring growing season.
