Take cuttings from any perennials that are not very hardy in case they don't make it through the winter and over winter them in a frost free area.
Check Greenhouse Heating
Make sure greenhouse heaters are working properly if you have them.
Keep mowing grass (at least once a week) and rake out any dead brown grass. Now's a good time to give your lawn a summer feed, especially if it will be the first of this year. This will ensure that your lawn remains in 'tip top' condition throughout the rest of the season.
Don't forget to harvest apples, pears and plums as they ripen.
Move Vulnerable Plants Indoors.
If you haven't moved plants that are tender and won't survive the winter yet, then now is the time to do so! Bring vulnerable plants indoors; anything that can't be moved should be provided with winter protection. Mulch, bubble wrap or protect with a winter fleece. We recommend the latter.
Tidy Autumn Leaves
Build a leaf bin out of chicken wire to collect autumn leaves.
Now's a great time to take cuttings from lavender.
Apply an Autumn Lawn Feed
Applying an autumn lawn feed now will keep your lawn healthy and help it withstand harsh winter weather. Make sure you apply an autumn fertiliser that's high in potash and phosphates. High Nitrogen spring/summer feeds will only encourage top growth, which is soft and easily damaged by frosts.
Spring Flowering Bulbs
Now is the perfect time to buy spring flowering bulbs, ready for planting before the first frost arrives. Spring flowering bulbs are best bought fresh and stored until your ready to plant them. We now have a large selection available.
Net ponds now to prevent leaves falling in.
