GARDENING TIPS FOR AUTUMN/ WINTER
Decide on planting schemes for bulbs for exciting spring displays.
Mulching – it is important to care for your soil as you will get a good return on your planting. Always make sure the mulch is a good finger thickness and not too close to the neck of the plant, this will help with moisture levels, increased fertility and suppress the weeds.
Splitting and dividing plants and storing until spring is a good way to increase more stock to fill in spaces in the borders and save money.
Order vegetable and flower seeds. Clean pots and glasshouses. Turn your compost heap.
Taking photos throughout the year enables you to reflect on how the garden has developed and where improvements are needed.
