As the summer comes to an end and the nights begin to draw in, it is time to turn your attention to looking after your garden throughout the cooler months. There are lots of things to do at this time of the year, to not only keep your garden looking good in the winter but also to see it into next Spring looking its best.
Here are some of the jobs to do in the garden over the next few weeks…
Plant Bulbs – Autumn is the time to plant bulbs for next spring – daffodils, bluebells and alliums can all be planted in the autumn and it will give you a beautiful floral display when spring arrives. Go and have a look around a garden centre for inspiration on what to plant now ready for the Spring.
Make Repairs – There may be things in the garden that need to be repaired such as fence posts or a shed roof. Doing these jobs now means that they will be strong during the winter storms and you will have less costly problems and less damage. Visit somewhere like these Timber Merchants Southampton https://www.timbco.co.uk/ to get the supplies of wood that you need.
Pick up a Bargain – This is the perfect time of year to get any new large garden items like tables and chairs, as many places will be holding a sale at the end of the summer. If you have been hankering after a new patio set or a summerhouse, now is the time to find those bargains.
