Brrrr, that September chill is in the air! Amidst the last few heatwaves of the summer, we’re experiencing those trademark September cold nights and crisp mornings – both of which have an impact on your gardening.
Once again we’ve got you covered with our September Gardening To Do List. These lists are a monthly feature, giving you a few easy tasks that make gardening more manageable.
- A fresh ‘sowing and growing’ season is upon us, so scrub out those cold frames and greenhouses in preparation.
- If you’re a fan of spring-flowering bulbs like daffodils and hyacinths, plant them now for a pop of colour when spring returns.
- Keep rhododendrons and camellias watered to ensure a great start for next year’s buds as they develop.
- Don’t stop deadheading your flowers – extend their flowering season well into the first frosts by staying vigilant throughout early autumn!
- Stop pots and planters from getting waterlogged by standing them on bricks to aid drainage.
- Pick all rotting fruit from your trees to prevent the spread of diseases across the plant.
