Top Tips for September!

placeholderfiveOne

Plants

 

  • Start planting containers with winter bedding, bulbs and evergreens
  • Lift, divide and replant perennials including hardy geraniums and campanulas
  • Plant spring flowering bulbs
  • Look out for small seedlings to transplant – foxgloves, astrantia, brunnera
  • Sow hardy annuals direct: larkspur, poppy, nigella, godetia, cornflowers
  • Sow winter salad and plant over-wintering onion sets

Watering / Garden Care

 

  • Keep deadheading and watering annuals in baskets and containers
  • Note any gaps or less successful parts of the garden. Prepare the ground for replanting by forking through compost, manure and a slow-release fertiliser such as fish, blood and bone. Container-grown evergreen shrubs for the winter garden include laurels, photinia, conifers and holly
  • Keep up with watering new plants, using rain or grey water if possible.
  • Reduce houseplant watering
  • Later in the month and in October start trimming evergreen hedges and clipped specimens of box and Portugal laurel
  • Continue to deadhead roses. Dispose of diseased foliage including any rusty leaves on the ground

Thinking Ahead

 

  • Net ponds before leave fall gets underway
  • Cover leafy vegetable crops with bird-proof netting
  • Clean out greenhouses so that they are ready for the autumn

Lawns

 

  • Although the Great British weather has kept expectations up to standard watering the new lawns on warm, breezy days may still be neccessary.
  • Aerate and top-dress lawns. Sow new lawns or worn areas or lay turf
