Warners launches the 'Good Planting Guide': A practical planting resource for landscaping professionals
Posted on Wednesday 13th July, 2016
Last month Warners Nurseries, in partnership with Landscaping Victoria, hosted a planting workshop for landscaping contractors.
Braving the a chill of winter, over 30 landscaping contractors visited the nursery for a quick tour, followed by a practical, hands-on workshop designed to demonstrate best planting practice for successful plant establishment in the landscape.
Andrew Smith conducted a step-by-step demonstration of how to prepare your site for planting, highlighting the importance of good watering practices – especially during the warmer months of the year. Drawing on his extensive experience as a landscaper, Brian Rankin shared his knowledge about appropriate irrigation options, while Greg Carrick of Garden City Plastics highlighted a number of products for successful plant establishment. The session ended with a group planting activity, with participants applying their new-found knowledge to a planting project on site at the nursery.
The event marked the launch of the Warners Good Planting Guide. This easy-to-read guide is designed as a ready reference for getting your plants off to a great start in the garden.
