Hunter Horticultural Tips

​Keep soil mulched

 

Soil must be kept mulched all year around. It helps with the soil temperature and also keeps weeds to a minimum. Mulch will reduce moisture loss through evaporation. 

Watering

 

Plants that require constant watering should be given a deep water every few days. A deep watering as opposed to a daily shallow watering will be more beneficial for plant roots, encouraging them to go deeper and not dry out as quickly.

 

We were featured in the Hornsby Advocate on Thursday 13th December 2018. In a report to the homeowner, we recommended that the tree be removed as an unacceptable risk due to a parasitic fungus in the root system. The application was refused by council. 

The tree then collapsed in a recent storm.
