Em­bark­ing on the big tidy-up

Garden News (UK) - - Contents -

Well the first frosts have hit with a vengeance and while the days have (mostly) been bright and sunny, the cold nights mean a change in the gar­den. There are still dahlias and chrysanths in flower, but mainly I’ve been en­gag­ing in Op­er­a­tion Tidy-Up. I sus­pect, how­ever, that I’m not alone in start­ing one job and sud­denly see­ing at least two more that need do­ing more ur­gently! If you fancy an in­ter­est­ing project, our fea­ture on grow­ing a fam­ily tree of ap­ples (page 20) could be just the thing. Essen­tially dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of ap­ple on the same tree, it’s a cen­turies-old tech­nique and one that’s well worth try­ing. Have a great (if cold!) gar­den­ing week.
