September is a lovely garden month! A time to go harvesting and you will see the first autumnal colours appear. It will be colder in the garden in the mornings but by afternoon the sun is still warm. This month there are still various tasks that you can do in the garden.
Autumn is the time to plant up your spring flowering bulbs so that you can look forward to a bright and cheerful garden in the spring – just what you need after a dull and cold winter. If the soil temperature drops it’s time to get planting.
The following fruit trees and bushes provide you with delicious juicy fruit in late summer. September is a good month to devote extra care and attention to these plants to ensure lovely home-grown fruit next season too.
In the month of September nature gives you a foretaste of autumn and the most special and beautiful autumnal will start to appear in your garden. And there is more than enough to do to care for your plants.
While the summer may be drawing to a close, there is still much to enjoy and do in your garden. But don't forget you can of course also enjoy your garden indoors. With cut-flowers your garden will bloom beautifully, inside and out!
In addition to the plants in your garden, the lawn will also need some attention this month. Fertilising, aerating and doing some pre-winter maintenance are just some of the activities you can carry out this month.
