5 Essential Ways to Use Your Used Garden Machinery This Summer

Creating that perfect garden can be quite a tough feat, and sometimes seems like it requires all of your efforts.  Fear not friends, there are a few tips which will keep your garden looking spick and span this Summer!


  • Insects are the pesky pests which have a habit of feeding on our flowers and making our garden look uncared for.  We advise that you take to spraying both upper and lower leaves with neem or pyola oil every 10 days to keep critters such as aphids away.  At Balmers GM we have a range of sprayers in stock to make this task much quicker and simpler for Summer.


  • Pruning is the key to keeping plants looking pretty for longer.  Make sure you prune rose bushes after the first bloom, and dead head regularly to avoid your patch looking less than perfect.  Cutting all weak and dead wood away, and losing any limp leaves is a great way to ensure that your plants will be perfect next year. 


  • Spring blooming bushes such as azaeleas and rhododendrons should not be touched after mid-Summer to render them ready for their first growth in the Spring.


  • Prune well into Autumn with perennials to bring out the blooming times and keep them bushy for longer.


  • If you think your patch needs a bit more colour, then fear not!  It’s not too late to plant Summer blooming bulbs or swift-bloom Summer seeds such as sunflowers.  So get creative, and plant more today!
