Thompson & Morgan has these really pretty plug plants in the viola family! They’re very sweet little flowers that brighten up your garden no end!
Jobs for this month. Pick any crops that need picking – harvest and preserve what you can. Pickle the beetroot! Make roast tomato sauce to use up the last of the tomatoes and make green tomato chutney with what is unripe!
Rake and pick up the leaves. Clear the lawn and try to get it a cut whilst its dry! Tricky in this weather I know!
Buy winter bedding plants now and start planting them in the beds and borders. Plan and plant your hanging baskets if you’re having them. Dismantle your summer baskets and put them away.
Clear the last of the courguettes – use them if they’re not too watery at this time of year. Make a chutney or roast them.
Trim back any hedges that have become unruly. Ensure your garden is getting tidy as the autumn progresses. Plant green manure on the vegetable plot if you have nothing in.

Make plans for what you’ll grow next year. Start looking for seed ideas!
