THINGS TO DO IN THE GAR­DEN THIS MONTH

Living France - - À La Maison -

1 Get ready to plant bulbs for a stunning spring dis­play. Aim to put in daf­fodils dur­ing Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber, but leave tulips to be­tween late Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber. 2 Spilt herba­ceous peren­ni­als and re­plant while the soil is still warm enough to en­cour­age their roots to spread. 3 Dig over the soil look­ing out for peren­nial weeds such as couch grass and bindweed, slug eggs and other pests, and any pota­toes missed dur­ing the ini­tial har­vest.
