Hello and welcome to July - wow, what a start... We’ve passed the Winter Solstice so days are getting longer. We've had another lock down, freezing cold temperatures and... RAIN!! So. much. rain. I know we need it, but it tends to scare the customers away!!! And we've had a number of frosts up our way already - with a few ornamental plants suffering as a result, but they're hanging in with new growth coming through.
When you venture back out into the garden, we'd really love to see you @ GLSC and we'd really value your support. It's been a very quiet few weeks so come and keep us busy!!! We've got a fabulous VIP offer this month to kickstart your garden for Spring - details below. And WE NEED YOUR HELP in another way, Green Lifers! We've put together a survey for GLSC customers, and we'd love to know what you think of us. It will help us greatly improve our products and service. It's up to you if you'd like to answer anonymously; or if you're ok leaving your details, you could WIN a $25 voucher to spend with us (we've got 4 to give away). Click on this link which will take you to the survey:https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GLSC2021
Paul & I have been busy these last few weeks presenting talks; we visited the Kalamunda Community Garden, we had the Hills Gardening Group visit us (pictured right), then we went and visited the Piney Lakes Community Garden down at Murdoch. It’s always great to chat to gardeners and give them a little more insight into what we do (and why we do it!).
It's been a LONG time coming; but you will soon see some changes to GLSC's website. Hopefully it'll be easier for customers to find either products or information they’re looking for. When launched in the next couple of weeks, we’d love to know what you think of how it works for you (the buzzword is “CX – customer experience!”) and what you think of the updated look. If you happen to find bugs; please let us know. Despite rigorous testing there’s bound to be something we miss… It will also mean that you'll need to reset your password to log into the members' section; unfortunately for security there's no way this information can be accessed and transferred from our end.
This month we've got lots of tips & tricks for winter gardening in Perth... we hope you're inspired to get out and get busy; at least between the showers!
See you soon @ The Green Life Soil Co
Linda & the team
Some things you can plant in your garden NOW are:-
Artichokes (globe [pictured right] & Jerusalem types), Asparagus, Beetroot, Broad Beans, Broccoli, Cabbage, Celery, Celeriac, Coriander, Endive, English Spinach, Kale, Kohl Rabi, Lettuce, Mint, Onion, Parsley, Peas, Potatoes, Radish, Rhubarb, Silverbeet, Snow Pea, Spring Onion, Strawberries, Turnip.
It's a little borderline now whether you can grow winter crops from seed... it's always worth a try if you're feeling lucky! Otherwise, look for healthy seedlings to plant out. You'll be saving yourself 4-6 weeks minimum, so you'll be picking your crops sooner. If Spring (and hot weather) is early - you'll want to make sure you get a harvest asap. Another tip is to select dwarf or small growing varieties - they tend to fruit quicker as they don't have to spend as long growing to their maximum size before flowering.
Check out our FREE downloadable 'When to Plant in Perth' guide here. We've got one for vegies & another for herbs ~ as well as heaps more info on individual vegies, natural pest control, building healthy soil and SO much more!!! If you're stuck inside due to inclement weather - spend some time and explore what we've got for you (click on the 'learning centre' tab).
We're expecting Rhubarb & Asparagus crowns to arrive about mid/end July. Please give us a call (or keep an eye on our Facebook page) to confirm stock has arrived.
