Keep up the wa­ter­ing and feed­ing rou­tines on pots and con­tain­ers – there’s still life there if you care for them.

Pot up some mint and pars­ley for your kitchen win­dowsill.

Septem­ber is an ideal time to re-seed or re­turf your lawn.

When har­vest­ing your pota­toes, re­move all the lit­tle ones from the soil as well as th­ese can carry disease.

Peren­nial weeds in the bor­ders or your lawns can be treated by ap­ply­ing weed killer this month.

In the veg and fruit gar­den, the main job is har­vest­ing but also think about or­der­ing new fruit trees. You can also plant out your spring cab­bages now but cover with net­ting to pro­tect from birds. Au­tumn onion sets and gar­lic can be planted out now, too.

Ex­tend your herba­ceous bor­ders’ sea­son by plant­ing late in­ter­est plants such as se­dums and asters.
