Winter Maintenance

Tetrapanax Papyrifer Rex
Ed’s Garden Maintenance Operator Clive sent in his winter maintenance plan for one of his regular gardens.  The Musa Basjoos (Hardy Banana) are the two tubular constructions made up of chicken wire stuffed with straw and then wrapped in fleece the Tetrapanax papyrifer ‘rex’ is the thin one wrapped in fleece.  The Melianthus Major dominates the bed now that everything else barring Euphorbia pasteuri is either wrapped up, cut back or mulched with a good layer of compost.  The less hardy heavily mulched plants are Canna Durbans, Dahlia Bishop of Llandaff and Hedychium Taras.  Whilst Eupotarium rugosum ‘Chocolate’.  Rudbeckias (fulgida and goldstrum) and Helenium Moerheim beauty’s are all cut back awaiting Spring.  The annual Ricinis has been removed after the first frost, new ones will be sown in mid spring along with Tithonias.  Once we get a particularly heavy frost the Melianthus will turn to mush but is root hardy and will be cut back then.  Please contact Ed’s Garden Maintenance for your gardening needs.

One and Half Tons of Wet Oak Leaves

Ed’s Garden Maintenance Operators are busy clearing wet leaves.  Clive from South West London cleared over one and half tons of wet oak leaves for a customer (1500 kg).  Clive worked for the customer last year so knew to take an empty van and that it would require 3 runs to the recycling depot.
