Home Living : July 19th 2011
4 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, July 19, 2011 HOMELIVING Spring's sow welcome The garden begins to stir in August so start to get ready to work towards your spring garden. It's important to protect tender new growth from seasonal changes and the first of the warm season's pests. Here's a guide to what fruits and vegetables to start sowing in early August. Vegies: tomatoes August is the best month to start tomato seeds in windowsill pots. The seedlings that germinate indoors will then be ready to go into garden beds when it's warmer and the chance of frost is over. Flowers to sow: portulaca Portulaca's succulent stems and leaves make this colourful flower a good choice for summer displays -- and it's hardy enough to cope with life in a hanging basket. Portulacas can be a little tricky to germinate because their tiny seeds need light. Press the seeds into pre-moistened seed-raising mix in a small pot and keep damp. Cover the pot with a layer of plastic wrap. Carefully separate the seedlings when big enough and transplant into larger pots. Don't move them out into the garden until it's warm. Prune in August Prune current season's gall wasp lumps from the branches of citrus trees. In cold areas, prune roses. After pruning, feed with Dynamic Lifter Advanced and, while they're leafless, don't forget to spray the stems and surrounding soil with lime sulfur. Plant of the month Hellebores (winter roses) flower right through the cold months and, because much of their show is created by the long-lasting bracts, individual blooms can last for weeks.

The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
