October – Tidy up the garden

Now the leaves are finally changing colour and beginning you fall you may want to book in a one-off session for leaf removal, and a general ‘putting the garden to bed’ tidy-up.

If  you have a lawn now is a good time for some maintenance work to keep it looking lovely.

If you have a pond, it is a good idea to net it against falling leaves and also to clear out two-thirds of the summer’s growth of pond plants, they grow very fast, and those that die down in winter will only contribute to enriching the water with unwanted nutrients.

Bulbs, have you been tempted by those Oh so lovely pictures and packets, but not got time to actually plant or pot them up – a job I’d love to take off your hands, so satisfying knowing what a lovely display is set up ready to roll in spring.
