Going into Autumn. Is your garden autumn ready?
It seems like summer arrived just a short time ago, but evening temperatures are cooler, schools are in session and autumn is around the corner. Soon the leaves will gradually change colour and we'll find ourselves in a new gardening season.
In autumn the soil is moist and warm – perfect for establishing plants before winter sets in. This is why so much planting takes place in autumn. Bare-root trees are typically planted from autumn to spring, and autumn is also a popular time for laying turf. Timing is key to planting.

Mulch around plants. After planting trees or shrubs, apply a generous mulch. This can be manure, bark chips or compost as it helps to seal in moisture, and adds slow-release nutrients as it breaks down. Never heap mulch around the base of a tree – the all-important root flare must be visible. Apply a thick ring around the base of the tree, about 15cm deep.
Never apply mulch on frozen or dry soil, always water thoroughly first, then mulch. We can help with all of this.
