Autumn gardening tips

Thursday, 13 September 2018 11:48:03 Europe/London

Our top five tips

Autumn is an exciting time for gardening and nature fans! While we lose summer’s bright flowers, there is a lot you can do to have colour in your garden during the colder months - and to prepare it for next Spring.

Here are our top five Autumn garden tips from in-house expert and Head of our Garden Centre, Mark:

Look after your lawn

This is the best time of year to feed your grass to prep it for Spring (or to grow a new lawn all together!).  Giving the green stuff some attention now will mean it is protected and in good health throughout winter - and in full glory by Springtime. It’s an idea to scarify (scrape out your lawn), feed it with a specific Autumn fertiliser and seed any patches which aren’t as lush as you’d like.  The feed will be able to work its way into the cool soil and reach the roots which are working well at this time of year.

What to do in the garden in Summer

Summer’s finally here and your garden is the best place to enjoy the sunshine!

By now, everything will be looking green and lush, as trees and shrubs are covered in leaves and most plants are flowering. You can make the most of it by following our simple 9-point summer garden checklist for June, July and August:

Jobs to do in the garden in June

While there’s much to admire and enjoy come June, there is still work to be done:

  • Even with regional variations throughout the UK, it’s pretty much safe to say that we’re beyond late frosts by now, so it’s a great time to plant your hanging baskets, containers and borders; we suggest you experiment with colourful summer-flowering plants and our pro-tip is to trial some locally grown roses.

  • It’s a good time to lift out clumps of yellowing Spring flowers, such as Bluebells

9 Spring gardening tips

9 Spring gardening tips to prepare your garden for Summer

Our Spring gardening guide will help you to get your garden Summer-ready!

What to do in the garden in April

As the sun strengthens and more and more plants are flowering after a long winter, it’s delightful to watch floral pops of colour appearing as the garden comes back to life - and to see the fruits of your earlier efforts.  

1. Spring clean your garden - April is a good time for a garden and patio Spring clean. Pull out old plants from the borders or containers, clean your patio, remove algae from the slabs and get your pots ready for a new planting season. It’s an added bonus that you’ll burn 200+ calories an hour in the garden, helping to keep you fit; who needs to pay a gym subscription!

2. Maintain your garden pond in Spring - As the pond life returns we suggest that you turn the pump back on and examine your pond. You’ll also need to consider which plants need pruning and any new ones you’d like to add. Remember that there are special water plant food pellets which help the plants thrive...

How to give the best Valentine’s roses

Red roses make the perfect Valentine’s gift but if you are looking to truly spoil someone, Freedom roses are the creme de la creme...
