David’s Main­te­nance Tips

My Weekly - - Gardening -

If you don’t drain it for the win­ter, it pays to start up the lawn­mower and let it tick over for five min­utes to keep ev­ery­thing work­ing. On mild days, if the ground is not too wet and the wheels don’t sink into it, David will run over the lawn with the blades set high. It scoops up any fallen leaves and, chopped up and mixed with a small amount of grass, they will com­post eas­ily. Turn off and pro­tect out­side taps and wash green­house glass so that max­i­mum light can get to over­win­ter­ing plants.
