RE­MOVE SHAD­ING The strength of the sun is wan­ing now so it’s im­por­tant to max­imise the amount of light in­side your green­house. EMPTY COM­POST BINS Use well-rot­ted com­post as a mulch in your gar­den and make room in your com­post bin for fo­liage and flow­ers you’ll be clear­ing from bor­ders and con­tain­ers in the au­tumn. MOVE PLANTS The soil is still warm, so now’s a great time to move any de­cid­u­ous plants around that are in the wrong place.

SOW GREEN MANURES Hardy green manures, such as Hun­gar­ian graz­ing rye, will stand over winter and pro­tect the struc­ture of the soil dur­ing spells of heavy rain.

BRING TEN­DER PLANTS

IN­DOORS Lift and pot up non-hardy plants and pop them into a porch, con­ser­va­tory or green­house if low tem­per­a­tures are fore­cast.
