Jobs For The Weekend

It's set to be a lovely weekend, weather wise, so its the perfect opportunity to get into the garden and get stuck into some of those early autumn tasks. Here's a few things you could be doing this weekend.
  • Plant prepared hyacinths for Christmas flowering indoors
  • Remove tired summer bedding and replace with winter flowering pansies
  • Begin planting spring flowering bulbs
  • Give the lawn its last mow of the year (hopefully!)
  • While the weather is warm and wet weeds can still be a problem. Keep on top of things with regular weeding or by using a weed killer
  • Work over the empty areas on the veg plot and apply some pelleted chicken manure

That should keep you out of trouble! Enjoy the sunshine.
