  • Autumn Gardening Tips: Prepare Your Garden For The Winter Ahead

    Autumn is the time of year when the weather is turning colder and you probably are starting to spend less time in your garden, however an experienced gardener will know this is actually a very important time of year to give your garden attention. It is vital to carry out some great autumnal garden chores to prepare your garden for the winter ahead and make sure you hit the ground running in spring.

    Avid gardeners should take note of our autumn gardening essential tips:

    Leaves – This is an obvious task for autumn but do not underestimate its importance. You should be gathering fallen leaves before they turn to mush, as well as grass clippings and any prunings to make into a compost. Make sure your compost contains a good mix of materials for a high quality compost. Remember if you fail to remove fallen leaves regularly from your garden.

    Lawns – Now is when you will be getting in your last mows before winter. Keep an eye out for weeds that have not died following your last treatment and be sure to deal with them before the long winter ahead. A good way to rejuvenate your lawn and encourage health over winter is to aerate the lawn with a garden fork and scatter lime lightly over it.

    Hedge Trimming – If you have hedges in your garden then autumn is a great time of year to trim them before the cold of winter. This way they will stay compact over the winter months.

    Cuttings – To make sure your garden is full and vibrant in spring you can make new plants from cuttings of your existing plants and autumn is a great time of year to do this. It is particularly a good time of year to take cuttings from hardwood herbs, including your rosemary or bay. If you remove some of the lower leaves and dip your cuttings in hormone powder and pot in small containers of premium potting mix you are good to go. Just remember to keep the cuttings moist and shelter them from strong wind and sun. High quality potting benches in your greenhouse will make this autumnal chore much easier.

    Roses – If you are a fan of roses in your garden then autumn is a time many varieties can be blooming. Now is the time to order them from local nurseries.

    Good luck with your autumn gardening.
