Also, don't miss out on the 10 most important jobs to do in the garden this month:
- Start the autumn cleanup: empty and clean pots, clear pond weeds, pick off rotting fruits and dispose of diseased plant material.
- Start transplanting evergreen conifers, hedging and flowering shrubs. Tall plants need secure staking to give them vital support until new roots have developed.
- Carry out essential lawn maintenance to avoid waterlogging. Autumn is also favourable for creating new lawn from turf or seed.
- Perennial weeds in the borders can be treated with weedkiller this month.
- Plant out your spring cabbages now, but cover with netting to protect from birds.
- Try freezing, drying, pickling, and storing your crops so that you can benefit from them during winter.
- Start planting autumn onion sets and garlic bulbs for cropping next year.
- When the soil is still warm start planting new perennials and spring flowering bulbs like daffodils, crocus, tulips and hyacinths.
- Prune late-summer flowering shrubs, climbing roses and strawberry plants.
- Perfect time to plan your border and vegetable plots for next year. Remember to rotate your crops as it improves soil structure and fertility.
