Autumn in the Garden
Get Ready for the Winter

The summer is now well and truly over, which means getting the garden ready for winter. This is our guide to what needs doing at this time of year!

  • Plant spring bulbs

  • Plant spring bedding

  • Move delicate shrubs indoors/undercover before the first frosts

  • Lay new lawns

  • Dead head perennials, but please leave the seed heads for birds to feed on if you are not going to harvest them

  • Plant or move shrubs whilst the soil is still warm enough to do so

  • Clear up fallen leaves and use them for compost

  • Cut the hedges

  • Ensure that outdoor taps are insulated ready for the winter drop in temperatures

  • Batten down the hatches ready for the wind and rain to settle in.

This is one of the busiest times of the year, but once completed you’ll get sit back and enjoy your handiwork. Make the most of the break whilst you can, it won’t be long until it all starts over again!
