Also, don't miss out on the 10 most important jobs to do in the garden this month:

  1. Start the autumn cleanup: empty and clean pots, clear pond weeds, pick off rotting fruits and dispose of diseased plant material.
  2. Start transplanting evergreen conifers, hedging and flowering shrubs. Tall plants need secure staking to give them vital support until new roots have developed.
  3. Carry out essential lawn maintenance to avoid waterlogging. Autumn is also favourable for creating new lawn from turf or seed.
  4. Perennial weeds in the borders can be treated with weedkiller this month.
  5. Plant out your spring cabbages now, but cover with netting to protect from birds.
  6. Try freezing, drying, pickling, and storing your crops so that you can benefit from them during winter.
  7. Start planting autumn onion sets and garlic bulbs for cropping next year.
  8. When the soil is still warm start planting new perennials and spring flowering bulbs like daffodils, crocus, tulips and hyacinths.
  9. Prune late-summer flowering shrubs, climbing roses and strawberry plants.
  10. Perfect time to plan your border and vegetable plots for next year. Remember to rotate your crops as it improves soil structure and fertility.
