Scotts Osmocote Winter Gardening Guide

Around The Garden

  • Winter is the perfect time for a good garden tidy up. Many deciduous trees and fruit trees are best pruned over winter when they are dormant and many other shrubs or perennials can also take a cut back now (so long as you don’t get heavy frosts).
  • Feed your soil and prepare for spring by topping dressing garden beds and vegetable growing spaces with Scotts Osmocote Compost Premium Soil Improver
  • Do a winter garden walkaround – what spaces need more plants? Have you got hard landscaping that needs doing? Create a garden plan and do the research over winter.

In the veggie patch

  • Prepare veggie beds for spring crops by improving the soil with compost, animal manures and organic fertilisers.
  • Begin to sow seeds of spring and summer crops – they’ll need to be started indoors to get them to germinate. Keep seedlings in a warm protected spot until the weather warms up in spring.

Seasonal Colour

  • The smiling faces of violas and pansies love winter! Use them to fill garden beds with colour – especially beneath deciduous trees.
  • Fill hanging baskets or pots with cool season flowering annuals to bring pops of colour into your garden
