Clear away an­nu­als

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

Given a mild au­tumn, many an­nu­als will keep on flow­er­ing well into Oc­to­ber, but by now their days are num­bered and it makes sense to tidy them up be­fore win­ter sets in. Snip off twine from plant sup­ports be­fore re­mov­ing them. Check stakes and cane top­pers for pests then wipe down be­fore stor­ing in a shed or garage. An­nu­als should pull out of the ground fairly eas­ily. Cut thick sun­flower and cos­mos stems into smaller sec­tions to help them break down. Put seed­heads and dis­eased ma­te­rial in your green waste bin and ev­ery­thing else on the com­post heap.
