As Summer comes to an end it’s time to focus on preparing your garden for Autumn and even next year! These are our top Gardening Tips for September.
|Continue to feed and dead-head hanging baskets as they will often keep going until the first frost.|
|Plant spring flowering bulbs.|
|Start dividing herbaceous perennials and water well as the weather cools down.|
|Start planting autumn onion sets.|
|Look out for rotting fruit on apple, pear and plum trees. Pick them as they spread diseases if left on the tree.|
|Start to remove shading to maximise light in your greenhouse. Close vents at night to trap heat to ensure a longer crop.|
|Treat your lawn with an autumn feed to prepare it for the winter months. Also, keep a lookout for chafer grub and leather jacket damage as now is the time to treat it.|
