October gardening

Park in the Fall

TOP TEN GARDEN JOBS FOR THIS MONTH

 

Plant spring bulbs in pots, orders and even informally in your lawns

Use winter colours such as deep purples and pinks for containers. Plant up with heathers, cyclamen, pansies, skimmia for beautiful displays

Plant evergreen shrubs and conifers now before the ground is too hard and cold

Raise pots up on pot feet to reduce water logging

Collect seeds from hardy perennials such as astrantia, delphiniums and more and sow straight away

Replace compost in containers with fresh compost ready for Winter plants

Tidy up patios and lawns by raking up and sweeping fallen leaves

Provide shelter for wildlife over the winter with log piles, compost heaps and ensure water is available. 

Apply Autumn lawn feed to revive the grass after the hot summer. We recommend Westland All In One Autumn Lawn feed and moss killer. 

Ensure all climbing or tall plants are well supported, tied to trellis or with canes so that they do not suffer in the Autumn and Winter winds.
