HASTINGS MAIL, AUGUST 3, 2011
Gearing up for winter gardening: Henk Velvis and his dog Shadow.
''Gardening in winter might be
challenging, but it's essential for a
good show next season,'' says
Henk Velvis from Autumn Leaves.
Whatever you do in your
garden, Henk urges you not to
forget there is a lot going on
''The spring bulbs are getting
ready to poke their noses above
ground, so when you dig, be very
careful, '' he says.
Henk says it's time to get rid of
the trouble that arose last season.
''To dispose of the rotting plant
centres in your perennial beds --
and to remove those weeds
between the plants you treasure --
you have to dig up and divide the
plants, and then re-plant the
healthy parts, '' says Henk.
Henk recommends you be as
thorough as possible when you
remove the hidden terrors of the
convolvulus that strangled your
plants last season.
''Also, the roses will start
dropping their leaves soon, and it
is time to start pruning and
spraying them against diseases for
a clean start to spring.''
Henk reminds you to give your
roses a good dose of compost in
''Your deciduous trees and
shrubs will also show where the
branches are crossing -- they will
rub and give diseases a chance to
gain hold -- so those branches and
the other dead ones need to be
removed, '' he says.
Winter is the perfect time to
start thinking of the changes you
want to make in your garden.
Henk is an expert landscaper
and can design you a new garden.
Give Henk and Shadow a call
on 873 3522 or 021 0249 0870.
Warm and dry: Toby can keep your home leak-free.
Winter is here and if you've
noticed any leaks in your roof or
have gutters and downpipes
blocked with leaves, it's time to
call Toby, of Toby's Roof and
''At this time of year rooves,
gutters and downpipes are very
important in keeping your home
dry and therefore warmer,'' Toby
''I've been busy fixing leaks and
cleaning gutters and, if the
problem is ongoing, I can arrange
for professional fitting of gutter
guard to prevent the leaves
building up again. I also have my
own continuous spouting
machine and can replace gutters
and downpipes whether they are
metal or pvc.''
Is water dripping inside your
home? Ceiling discolouring? Once
again, Toby will ensure that all
leaks are mended quickly and
''Sometimes it's a matter of just
checking the roof and I find the
hole straight away,'' he says.
''Other times I may have to
crawl inside the ceiling space, as
it's amazing how far water can
travel along the framing -- drips
inside the house are often metres
from the actual hole. It pays to get
on top of that quickly otherwise
the damage grows.''
A qualified plumber and
building inspector since 1988,
Toby and his family moved to
Hawke's Bay from South Africa a
little over two years ago and he
began his business in late 2010.
''We love the Hawke's Bay lifestyle
and the beautiful summers -- but
there's just enough rain as well to
keep me busy!''
To keep your roof, guttering
and downpipes in top condition,
