Jobs For The Weekend

The warm dry weather is here again this weekend, what have we done to deserve it?! Its the perfect time to get into the garden and tick a few jobs off of the list before the rain comes back (which it will!)

  • Plant out winter flowering pansies now for flowers right through the cold months.
  • Pot Amaryllis bulbs for indoor flowers later on.
  • Apply an autumn lawn food to your lawn to help strengthen the grass through winter and to give it a boost in early spring.
  • Plant garlic, onion sets and shallots for over wintering. This will help reduce the chance of them bolting (running to seed) next spring.
  • Soft fruit will be in stock soon so prepare a bed for raspberries, currants and gooseberries.

Whatever you do in the garden this weekend, enjoy.
