Gardening tips for the autumn

Posted on August 26, 2016 by Potter & Rest

Autumn is the time for a clean up and clear out.

After lots of summer growth, it’s the season for chopping back and deadheading. The work done now will pay off in the spring when oodles of lush, new growth appears.

To help with your pruning, lopping and chopping is a handy little three step programme from equipment experts Fiskars.

Early autumn                                                                      

Cut

Now is an ideal time to cut back many late summer flowering shrubs to encourage growth and keep them flowering late into the season.

Tidy

Clippings and leaf fall create plenty of mess for gardeners to clear, so autumn is the time to turn chaos into compost. During the winter, cuttings and leaves break down and produce nutrient-rich compost, ready for boosting the garden in the New Year.

Plant

While the soil is still warm and moisture levels are increasing, it’s a great opportunity to plant new perennials and spring bulbs, such as daffodils and tulips. There is still time for plants to establish themselves before the real cold sets in, so if you have any evergreen shrubs or conifers that you want to move or add, now is the time to do it.
