Plant Care

 

PlantcareA well kept garden – even an organic one – will need intervention from time to time, feeding plants, keeping pests and diseases at bay, and tackling those big or difficult weeding jobs. Here at Cleeve Nursery we carry everything you need, in either conventional, or if you prefer, environmentally friendly and organic products from well tried and trusted, top-named companies.

Both the problems you need to solve and the range of products available on the market can be overwhelming but we will help you make the right choice.

Whether you need advice on plant food, insecticide, fungicide or weed killer members of our team are qualified to advise you on the product that’s right for you and your plants.

 

Plant Food

 

plantfeedIf you want to boost your crop of fruit and veg, increase the size and abundance of flowers or make a foliage plant greener and leafier, you will need to feed your plants.
We stock both liquid and dry plant foods.

We have general and specialised plant foods so, if you want to feed your orchid or citrus, we have special feeds for these. But if you just want to give a general feed then perhaps fish, blood and bonemeal, growmore, Vitax Q4 or even farmyard manure is what you are looking for.

We have tomato feed, Phostrogen, Baby Bio and a range of Miracle Gro feeds too.

 

Pest Control, Insecticides and Fungicides

 

GrowingSuccessslugkillerRegardless of how well you manage your garden there are times when certain insects get out of control or your plants become infected by airborne fungal diseases.

Our policy is to select the best products on the market [after we have tested them ourselves] and offer only those. These may be garden sprays or biological natural product remedies. Some are organic, others preventative and we are always looking for the safest most effective way of growing pest free plants.

Remedies are fast changing from year to year so it really is best to come and see one of our trained team of experts for diagnosis and a recommendation of how to put things right!

We have won National awards for our plant care department!

Weed Killer

 

weedkillerUnwanted plants growing in the wrong place are the bane of a gardener’s life, and weeding by hand takes a lot of time and energy. Herbicides are by far the simplest form of weed control, but they can also be the most aggressive, so we are happy to stock environmentally-friendly and organic alternatives.

We carry a complete range of lawn weedkillers, path and drive weedkillers and weedkilelrs that can be carefully and selectively used to keep your plants weed free. Our policy is to select the best products on the market [after we have tested them ourselves] and offer only those.

Just like plant care remedies, changes occur frequently with old well known products disappearing and new ones coming on the market. A chat to our expert team will help you get the right solution to the problem! We have won National awards for our plant care department!
