It’s harvest time for loads of crops, so catch fruit and veg at their best. Onions are ready when the foliage starts drooping over. You can tell if sweetcorn is ripe by squeezing a kernel to see if milky juices come out.
Watering and feeding remains a priority, especially for pots, containers and hanging baskets.

Perhaps it’s even time time to try out an exciting new colour scheme?
Look after pond life – keep water levels topped up, remove blanket weed and cut back yellow foliage on pond plants.
