Moving into the summer, lawns generally were given some nice weather in mid-June but we would expect things to carry on drying out as we move into August. This being the case, we are currently applying foliar fertilisers plus surfactants to help any rain penetrate the soil as well as trace elements to help the plants survive the weather should it become abrasive. Weed control continues so we will be dealing with any later germinating or perennial weeds.
As we move into spring, we often get tempted to think that the weather is lovely and warm. In truth, it often is when we are stood outside mid afternoon but on the last few days, I have had to scrape much ice off the windscreen at dawn! These cold nights and diurnal shifts in temperature can restrict growth and still leave the plants vulnerable to mistreatment if we are not careful.
Dear All , We just wanted to let you know that we will be opening our new depot in Bicester this Friday, 2nd March.
After a very dry, and often hot few months (seldom though it has been), most lawns are now showing the effects of the summer months, which can be a very difficult time for them. Whilst last week saw a fair amount of rain, and with the exception of 2 rainstorms in March and May, we have had a fairly dry period since Winter. We are now seeing better moisture levels alongside climbing humidity. Generally speaking, we can expect to see an increase in rainfall throughout August, as well as the return of overnight dew.
Can you believe it's May already?! With one very dry and cold bank holiday weekend already behind us, we can see that soils have become incredibly dry and grass growth has slowed considerably. Generally speaking, we tend to say goodbye to the diurnal shift in temperature and colder nights around 1st May. We were promised much needed rain over the last week of April but as this is British weather we're talking about, the forecasts turned out to be incorrect and as a result the soils remain very dry.
As we move into spring, it's often tempting to make the classic British mistake and assume that the weather is going to be lovely and warm.
