As summer is during to an end, its time to start preparing your garden for the colder months! Doing so will help your garden look its best next Spring. So here’s five things that you can to do get your garden ready for Autumn:
Autumn is the best time to add Fertilizer to your plants as it will help restore the nutrients in the soil that have been depleted by growing plants during the spring and summer.
TOP TIP: Organic fertilizer’s such as Manure, Compost and Mulch are all great for this job!
Most gardeners suggest applying weed killer to you lawn in the autumn to prevent seeds that have fallen in summer from taking root. By doing so you should have fewer weeds to deal with in the Spring.
Autumn is a great time for those who love to get handy with the clippers! All the summer growth will likely have made your garden untidy, so neaten it up ready for winter. If you want, you can take some of these cuttings and plant them in pots, ready for Spring.
If you have pond in your garden, you’ll want to protect it in the autumn by covering its surface with a net. This should stop falling leaves going into the water, which can pollute the pond and make it rather stinky.
What’s more, if you have fish in your pond, make sure you break any ice covering the surface when it gets colder as otherwise they won’t be able to breathe.
You can plant your favorite Spring flowers (such as Daffodils) in the Autumn so that they are ready to bloom in the Spring. September/November is the perfect time to carry out this task as the soil will still be warm so the bulbs will have a chance to take root before the frost sets in.
