Know the Season
If you’re thinking about giving your garden a refresh and planting some new foliage, it is highly essential that you choose plant species that are well suited to the season you’re planting them in.
Many consider Spring to be the prime planting time, however throughout Autumn is the best time to plant and transplant many plant species. Before the full force of Winter hits is the best time for you to plant bulbs, bare-rooted roses and trees. It is because the soil is still warm in temperature and evaporation is generally low, and the days are still long enough for plants to develop new roots that will see them through winter.
Look After the Lawn
Before it gets too cold, it’s a great time to build up resilience for your lawn. Not only will this help your grass cope with the harsh Winter conditions, but keep your grass looking better for longer.
Do this with a few easy steps that will see you reap the benefits. Start by feeding your grass with a slow-release fertiliser that is specially formulated for Autumn and Winter. Next, hose on a soil stimulant such as Seasol to increase biological activity. Then be sure to treat your lawn for weeds. It can be done by hand or with a selective lawn weeder.
