With Auckland’s climate being sub-tropical, our winters tend to be warm enough for roses to bloom, if deadheaded regularly, right into winter. It can be tempting to continue deadheading and encouraging roses to flower. For the poor roses, however, this means they can’t get the proper rest they need and deserve. Imagine working year-round, and never getting a chance at a break! Read on to find out how best to allow your roses to rest for the coming winter.

Auckland’s climate may be trying to make a last-ditch effort to wring out as much heat from the sun as it possibly can, but there’s no denying the fact that it’s now technically Autumn. Thus, it’s time for us Garden Fairies to start flexing our mulching muscles!
With the December temperatures soaring above average for this time of year, the fairies have noticed some plants struggling! The occasional drizzle does little to replenish soil moisture, as it barely reaches the roots, or evaporates quickly with the heat.
If you’re a fan of endless weeding, then now is a great time to be out in the garden! With Spring in the air, the warming climate means weeds are going to be coming thick and fast from here on out! Alternatively, if weed-wrangling isn’t your thing, then a good thick layer of organic mulch may be more up your alley.
We service all of these areas, however if your address is more than 15km away from our HQ based at 177 Hobsonville Rd, a travel charge may apply. See our terms of trade for more info, or send a message through the contact form to clarify.
