Things To Do In Your Garden In September

ADAuthor - Artificial Grass Direct

2 min read

As we wave goodbye to summer, September signals the start of a new season for gardeners, with cooler, gustier weather and shorter days ahead.

Early autumn can be one of the busiest times for gardeners, especially if you have been growing fruit and veg this year. Make the most of the remaining warmth and get into the garden with our top 5 tips for gardening in September.

1. Watering

Watering is just as important in September as it is in spring. Keep up with the watering of new plants, shrubs and trees in September and if there isn’t sufficient rain this month, it’s advisable to keep watering once a week.

2. Planting

Use September to plant spring-flowering bulbs, evergreen shrubs and trees, which can get established before soil temperatures fall. If you grow veg, plant out spring greens, garlic and cabbages.

3. Harvest

Pick autumn raspberries, pears and apples, which will be at their best this September. It’s also worth picking any remaining tomatoes, potatoes and herbs for freezing or drying.

4. Pruning

While it’s not too late to finish any summer pruning now, it’s probably best to leave heavy pruning until spring. Give your hedge the last prune of the season in September, and if you live in a warmer area prune your summer flowering shrubs.

5. Lawn

For those with natural grass lawns, you should use September to finish planting a new lawn or fertilising and reseeding bare patches. After a long hot summer like this year, it’s best to do this earlier on in the month.

For those with artificial grass lawns simply sit back and enjoy odd jobs around the garden in the last of the sunshine! Other than a quick brush every couple of weeks to get rid of leaves and debris your lawn will take care of itself.

Happy gardening!
