Your autumn garden

As summer fades, here are some tips from Cyril Ernest Landscapes for early autumn gardening:

-Winter bulbs should be planted – think anemones, bluebells, snowdrops, daffodils, tulips and crocuses

-Make sure beds are thoroughly dug and fertilised before planting

-Fill borders with autumn flowering plants such as sedum and chrysanthemum which will provide colour later in the season

-Plant new perennials in September as the soil is still warm but there is more rainfall

-Rake the lawn thoroughly to remove thatch. Damaged areas should be spiked, fertilised and re-seeded

-Raise the height of your mower blades as grass growth will have slowed down

-Continue to prune and dead head summer plants

-Harvest and prune fruit trees – pick off any rotting fruit that will spread disease if left on the tree

-House plants that have been outside during the summer should be brought in before the first frost

 Enjoy your beautiful garden!
