September is an important month for jobs in the garden – there’s plenty to do as the Summer draws to an end.
- Prepare for planting by improving your soil with manure and bonemeal which will provide ongoing nourishment for new plants and shrubs
- Once the days start to cool down, plant new trees and shrubs – it’s the perfect time for them and they’ll provide you with a real treat next Spring
- Keep deadheading Summer flowers, if the weather is warm they will continue to flower during September
- If you’re planting trees, support them with a stake in their early years to ensure they become big and strong
