Job to do in the garden this Autumn


Get your garden tidy and ready for viewers – jobs to do in the garden this Autumn.
We’re now firmly in that time of year when planting is dying back, leaves are falling and bright summer colours are being replaced by the russet tones of Autumn.
It can leave your garden looking untidy and not presenting itself in the best light for viewings.  You also need to protect more tender plants from early frost… read on and get your garden ready!

  • Cut back perennials that have died down, they’ll be stronger next Spring. Leave short stems so that a) you know where the plans are and b) you provide home and food for any wildlife
  • Harvest any apples, pears or fruit on trees – leave it any longer and they’ll fall and spoil
  • Have a last trim of your lawn before the winter – it’s a good time to scarify your lawn so its in top condition for the next growing season
  • Clear the leaves, let air and nutrients get to your soil
  • Fill in a few gaps – a good idea to bring a bit of late summer colour to your borders and make it look less bleak in the autumn winter months.
  • Clean your pots!  We all hate this job, but it pays dividends when its spring and you want to put them all out again!  Scrub and clean and then fill them with your favour spring bulbs.
  • Lift tender plants, move them into a greenhouse or conservatory and then they don’t die over winter.
