Ur­ban or­chard

Element - - Gardening -

Give all your fruits trees a good feed. I see my home­made com­post mixed with used cof­fee grounds from the lo­cal cafe and a sprin­kling of grass clip­pings. Pile around each tree en­sur­ing that the com­post does not touch the truck as this can cause rot­ting. Clear any long grass from around the trees as these can har­bour shriv­elled fruit from fun­gal spores.
