September garden care

Gardening jobs this month:

Carry out autumn lawn maintenance, including aerating, scarifying, top dressing and feeding. Reseed bare patches and create new lawn from seed.

Cut back the canes on summer fruiting raspberries.

Remove spent summer annuals and replace with spring bedding such as wallflowers and forget-me-nots.

Peg down shoots of blackberries, loganberries and tayberries to send out roots and make new plants.

Strawberry patches should be moved every four or five years. This is an ideal time to do so giving them time to establish themselves in time before fruiting next year.
