STIGA Winter gardening essentials
Whatever the weather this winter, STIGA’s got you covered. Here are our top tips for a happy garden during the colder months.
One of our favourite winter tasks is bringing the outside in. Making interior decorations with holly, conifer stalks, mistletoe and pine branches helps us stay connected to the garden during the colder weather. Top tip - if you’re using a homegrown Christmas tree, stand it in a bucket of water outside for a few days before bringing it in and then remember to water it.
Winter is the ideal time to prepare for the following year. Hard prune roses, wisteria, fruit trees, Japanese maple and overgrown shrubs. Your garden might look bare after all this pruning, but your plants will reward you with lots of beautiful blooms come summer.
There is nothing prettier than a light dusting of snow resting peacefully on branches, but when snow turns into slippery ice, muddy sludge or falls so heavily that it blocks your path, STIGA’s innovative technology is on hand to save the day.
STIGA battery snow throwers are lightweight and practical. With no cable to get in the way, any area can be cleared with ease. Or if you prefer the power of petrol, single and two-stage throwers are available to combat compacted snow, even on large slopes.
Transform your STIGA tractor or front mower into a snow-clearing machine with our range of winter accessories. Simply swap your cutting deck for a blade, sweeper or thrower – and keep walkways and driveways free of snow, even if icy. Meanwhile, our STIGA sand spreader is designed to distribute sand, salt and gravel – so you can save ice-skating for the rink!
Use snow chains for added safety and stability, and protect your machine from harsh weather with a tractor cover.
There’s nothing like roasting chestnuts on an open fire and basking in the glow of crackling embers on a cool winter’s night. Whether you’re sawing wood from a fallen tree or prepping logs for the fireplace, STIGA have an extensive range of battery-powered, electric and petrol chainsaws to suit all your wood-chopping needs.
If your battery and charger are not going to be used for a long period of time, remove the battery from the charger and disconnect the AC outlet. Keep batteries in a cool shaded place without humidity, between 0-45°.
