Planning your Autumn Garden
We hate to say it, but Autumn will soon be upon us – did we even have a Summer? Either way, it’s time to start thinking about how to prepare your garden for Autumn.
Now we’re at the end of August, you may think that all you have to look forward to is harvesting your hard work from the previous months, but that isn’t the case. You could try your hand at new things! Broad beans and peas can be sowed from September right through to mid November – the advantage of getting them in early is that they can establish over the winter and fruit earlier. Garlic can also be planted from the Autumn right through to February.
I know it’s only August, but have you started thinking about your Christmas dinner as yet? You can plant seed potatoes in September – keep watering and earthing up until December and dig up the night before Christmas.
You can start to fill in any gaps with Autumn flowering plants as with wetter weather on the way, these will grow vigorously.
