Our Gardener Yorkie

Our gardening tips are brought to you by our very own gardening expert, Yorkie.

Yorkie likes nothing better than to be outside pottering about in the garden and, not surprisingly, he loves using our Yorganics, 100% recycled, locally-sourced and produced, nationally accredited peat-free compost.

The calendar below has been drawn up by Yorkie. It means you can plan, month-by-month, what needs to be done in your own garden. Each month, Yorkie will also be writing a different gardening article. You can view the article by clicking on the ‘read more’ prompt within each month’s tips.

If you would like to know how the Yorganics compost that Yorkie likes to use, please visit the process page of our website. From your garden to compost in less than 12 weeks, a perfect example of closed loop recycling.

Please note, Yorkie is not suggesting you wait until the date given on the calendar to do a certain job in the garden, in fact they can be done any time during the particular month.
