PLANT OF THE MONTH-PURPLE FOLIAGE SHRUBS
Now is a good time to select and plant these shrubs to give accent and colour contrast to borders of all sizes. Some like Cotinus "Lilla" or Berberis "Atropurperea Nana" are naturally dwarf. Others such as Cotinus "Royal Purple" or Physocarpus "Diabolo" can be pruned or let to grow naturally.
Other choices to plant now include those flowering at this time of year, those with autumn leaf colour and evergreens for winter interest.
AUTUMN IN THE GARDEN
This is a good time to tidy up your garden ready for the winter and to start looking to plant bulbs for some spring colour. We have a large range in stock including daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, crocus, dwarf iris, snowdrops, alliums, anemone and many others.
Remove old tired looking bedding plants and top up your tubs with new compost. When you have finished planting your bulbs, adding a few winter pansies or violas on top will look good for winter colour.
