Plan ahead

Now is an ideal time to plant trees and shrubs. Look around at the fab­u­lous range of de­cid­u­ous au­tumn fo­liage colours and maybe add some to your gar­den. Stake ones that may be sus­cep­ti­ble to au­tumn winds. While the soil is still rel­a­tively warm plant some hardy peren­ni­als, as well as spring bulbs. Cut back, cover or lift ten­der plants. In mild ar­eas you can leave dahlias in the ground. Gar­den tasks are mostly tidy­ing up, giv­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties also to browse cat­a­logues and or­der seeds and plants for next year.
