Gardening tips from listeners... winners of Spa Vouchers.

Monday 3rd October 
Ellen Delaney. Fornaught. Donoughmore. Cork
Marty. My gardening tip is to collect as many seeds as possible from your garden or others, ready for 
spring sowing. And marty the Magnificent Seven is the soundtrack to my youth in one channel land. Fabulous . 

Tuesday 4th October
Patrick Hagin-Meade,  Ballinteer, Dublin 16
Good morning Marty . 
My tip is get someone in to do the gardening and go for a good long walk.!


Wednesday 5th October
Eileen Murray. Main St. Baltinglass. Co. Wicklow.
Marty. Always use the water that you have boiled eggs in to water your house plants. They'll do exceptionally well. Try it. 

Thursday 6th October
Helen McMahon 
if you have a flowering dogwood shrub or shrubs (cornus) don't be tempted to prune. just now. leave them flourish and enjoy the light coloured floaty leaves adding colour and light to 
the garden...closer to December prune hard cutting long lengths of the vivid red branches..these branches are bendy and flexible (like your joints after using voltorol!) perfect for weaving into a 
circular shape..weaving the lengths into a plaited wreath add other bits painted pine cones ribbon ivy holly etc makes a perfect seasonal decoration or gift! will dry out but can be used for years.

Friday 7th October
Libby Ireton, Castletroy, Limerick
Marty. My gardening tip is to gather up all those fallen leaves into a black bag {or two} Sprinkle on some water, and tie it securely. Put it in a corner out of sight, and every few weeks shake the bags and turn over. This time next year open the bags and spread the Leaf mould compost on your garden!
