Top tips for September gardening

Top tips for September gardening
  1. Keep dead heading summer perennials like helenium, echinacea, and penstemon to prolong their flowering through to the end of the month.

  2. Divide hardy perennials that have become too large from the end of September.

  3. Plant prepared hyacinths now for Christmas flowering.

  4. Add organic matter to improve clay soil before winter.

  5. Dispose of any diseased plant material at the first signs of attack. Never compost it! This can risk the spread of spores.

  6. Start planning your spring garden. Look around your garden and take pictures of any space you want to fill as a reminder when making your bulb order.

  7. Start planting spring flowering bulbs like crocus, iris, narcissus and snowdrops. Wait a little longer to plant tulips: they do best planted after the first frosts in October.

  8. Collect seeds from finished flowers and store in envelopes with their names ready to sow in the spring.

  9. Wash out any empty containers with Jeyes Fluid to remove any harmful bacteria.

  10. Start a compost heap with fallen leaves. Leaf mold is highly nutritious and can be used next spring for mulch.

  11. Plant autumn flowering crocus for a final shot of colour before winter.
