March’s Gardening T ips From Paul Chatfield of Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services Trees and Shrubs There is still time to plant trees and shrubs if the task has not been already completed. Making sure the holes are dug big enough and deep enough for the root ball, also taking in consideration to use a good tree and shrub compost. Climbers and Wall-Plants Species and cultivars of Clematis that flower Summer & Autumn on new shoots made in the current season will benefit from a hard prune now. Roses The main pruning of bush and standard Roses should be carried out between the middle of the month and late March. Borders and Beds During mild spells weeds will start to grow. Deal with them as soon as they appear as they will be easier to remove. Bulbs and Corms Dahlia tubers in store for the Winter should be inspected to make sure that they are healthy and plump. Any bad patches should be cut away with a clean and sharp knife and dipped in Sulphur. Rock Gardens and Pools All leaves should have been removed by now. Mild spells may bring weeds & slugs, remove weeds while small and treat the slug s with slug bait (with suit able containers sunken in the ground, beer is a good tip.) Lawns Prepare for the growing season by raking with good wire rake removing worm casts and rubbish from lawn. Cut lawn but not too short then weed feed and moss kill as early as one can depending on the weather.

Fruit There is still time for both planting and pruning but try to complete task before new growth starts. Vegetables Seed potatoes should be removed from their bags and set to sprout in trays or shallow boxes (shed or greenhouse). Greenhouse and Frame Greenhouse should have been sterilized. Carnations and Chrysanthemums can be propagated from cuttings 55-60f (13-15c). Give free ventilation except on cold nights. House Plants Plants at home, particularly flowering ones need lots of light and free ventilation not stuck between blinds or curtains kept out of drafts and be careful not to over water, just damp. Always check how your plant looks. Chatfield’s Garden & Property Services North 2, Sway Storage & Workshops Barrows Lane, Sway, Lymington Hants, SO41 6DD Tel: 01590 682828 Mobile: 07821 610923

Looking for the perfect way to spend the long Easter weekend? Well look no further because The 2nd Big Bournemouth Beer Festival returns to the BIC Purbeck Hall from Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th April. The first Big Bournemouth Beer Festival enjoyed huge success last April and is returning with over 200 beers from breweries across the UK – that’s 50 more than last year! Last year’s festival attracted over 2500 visitors to the Purbeck Hall resulting in the venue having to turn people away! The BIC were pleased with how smoothly the event ran and the friendly and relaxed atmosphere at the festival, which is organised in association with East Dorset CAMRA and sponsored by Hot Rocks Restaurant and bar. “The event created a r e al bu z z in the t o wn , c ap tu ri n g th e imagination of customers and businesses alike. With the experience of the first year under our belts, we’re looking forward to making the next Big Bournemouth Beer Festival even bigger and better”, says Tom Madge, the BIC’s Assistant Marketing Manager. As you’d expect there will of course be a good selection of beers from local breweries such as Palmers, Bowman Ales and Hopback but there will also be the chance to sample a wide range of beers from breweries across the UK including Yorkshire, Kent, Cheshire and even as far out as the Orkney Islands! And if beer is not your usual tipple, this year’s festival will also feature its own cider and perry bar and also a wine bar for those who prefer a good glass of vino. If at any point you need an accompaniment to the beer tasting, food and bar snacks will also be available to purchase. The Beer Festival will once again be hosting live entertainment throughout the weekend in association with Bournemouth Folk Club. Many acts are already confirmed including Quinns Quinney who received a rapturous applause last year, Lady Winwoods Maggots and zany London-based band Top Shelf Jazz. The live entertainment went down a storm last year creating a wonderful atmosphere with dancing

in the evening sessions and more chilled out, relaxed music to enjoy during the afternoons. You don’t go home empty handed either, the £5.50 admission price not only includes your first half pint of beer but also a tasting guide and souvenir beer glass to remember your weekend. New for this year is ‘Sup-Up Sunday’ – there is no admission fee so, although this means you don’t get the freebies, you only have to pay for your beer vouchers and can drink up what’s left of the kegs! Another change for this year is that instead of buying your half pint beer vouchers when you arrive, you can pre-purchase them online whenever you like allowing you to avoid queues on the day. You can also get exclusive discounts on Wilts and Dorset Explorer bus tickets – helping to promote safe drinking. More information is available at www.bic.co.uk.

Shoppers asked to clear clogs for Air Ambulance A Dorset shopping centre is joining Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance’s (DSAA) recentlylaunched Save Old Soles (SOS) fund-raising campaign with its own take on the shoe recycling scheme. Castlepoint Shopping Park, Bournemouth, will be running ‘Clear out your Clogs’ during the week of March 14 to 19. Air Ambulance staff and volunteers will be at the shopping centre to promote ‘Clear out your Clogs’ during the week leading up to it, by handing out blue shoe recycling bags to shoppers. The Charity hopes people will take a bag while doing their shopping and use them to clear out any unwanted footwear when they go home. The bags can be taken back to a collection point outside the Marks and Spencer store during the ‘Clear out your Clogs’ week. DSAA communications manager Tracy Bartram s a i d : “ W e a r e e x t r e me l y gr a t e fu l t h a t Castlepoint are showing us their support again. “The SOS shoe and other footwear recycling campaign is such a simple way of people supporting the Air Ambulance. “It is not only focussed on helping us generate crucial funds, it is also about raising the awareness of the Air Ambulance and the service we provide. “Dorset and Somerset have a population of about 1.2 million people and if everybody donated just one pair of their unwanted shoes, the Charity would receive around £170,000.” The SOS shoe recycling initiative was created by the Air Ambulance’s recycling partner Bag It Up Ltd, which takes used shoes and other footwear and converts them into cash by trading them in Africa, Asia, and other parts of the world. A variety of footwear styles is in demand in many different countries and regions.

For example, mainly flat shoes without heels are wanted in Africa, while Eastern European countries need all kinds of shoes, depending on the fashion and the weather. Some countries and regions, particularly Asia and Africa, have lots of shoe repair businesses, where any worn shoes can be re-heeled or stitched up again, ready to be worn by somebody else. Castlepoint general manger Peter Matthews said: “Clear out your Clogs at Castlepoint is a fun and inspirational way of generating funds for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. “Working with the Charity’s dedicated team on campaigns such as this is a pleasure and we are delighted to be able to help such a good cause.” DSAA has just celebrated its 10th anniversary and has attended more than 7,600 emergencies since its launch, saving many lives with the speed at which casualties have been taken to hospital. The Charity needs to raise £1.4 million a year to keep its helicopter flying. More information about the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance or the SOS recycling scheme can be found by visiting www.dsairambulance.org.uk or by emailing info@dsairambulance.org.uk or calling 01823 669604.
