Autumn

Autumn is a great time for tidying up the garden and planning ahead. Read a few of our top tips to keep you busy this Autumn!

  • Prune Roses – Cut back climbing and rambling roses once they’ve finished flowering and tie in the stems.
  • Mulch your beds and borders – After tidying borders, mulch with bark chips, well rotted manure or leaf mould to insulate plant roots for the winter and keep the weeds at bay.
  • Cut back raspberry canes – Cut back the fruited canes of your summer fruiting raspberries, leaving the new green canes for next year’s crop. Tie in next year’s raspberry canes to support wires or fencing.

  • Lawn Care – Spring and Autumn are the best times to treat your lawn, when there is time for the grass to respond before the soil temperatures fall and growth terminates for the season.
