Toomers Tips

October

Our gardening tips for late summer going into early autumn


Re-seed your lawn (whole lawn or patching in)

It's now cooler for grass seed to germinate


Apply autumn lawn feed

This helps to eliminate moss


Cover your pond with netting

It'll stop leaves falling in, preventing harmful gasses building up and damaging pond life


Plant shrubs and trees

(acers, liquid ambers, winter flowering cherry trees etc.)

The soil is still warm, helping roots to establish and grow before winter


Prune back perennial plants that have gone over

Split and divide any plants that have become large


Remove summer baskets that have gone over, and start your winter baskets

Use winter pansies, violas, polyanthus etc.


Compost the waste from tidying up your garden

Separate out any wood before composting, and use compost maker to accelerate


For further tips or advice, our garden centre staff are on hand and always happy to help - speak to James, Nigel or Justin.
