Is your garden prepared for the winter?

Autumn is a busy time in the garden.  Now is the time to put the garden to bed for the winter so that it can flourish again next year. We have listed a few tips to help out around the garden using our ever-popular Frosch Vinegar Cleaner.   Greenhouse Cleaning Many gardeners recommend an early spring clean, when over wintering pests can be got rid of.
