Tick Everything Off Your September Garden Checklist!

Take softwood cuttings this month.

It can often become overwhelming trying to get everything done in the garden. We try our best to keep things simple and give you a helping hand whenever we can. Here is our September checklist – make sure you’ve ticked everything off before October!

  • Plant both autumn and spring flowering bedding like wallflowers this month. This will make sure your garden is full of colour all year round with minimal effort!
  • Remove old summer bedding once they’ve finished flowering (collecting the seeds as you go). Leaving plant waste can ruin your soil and will allow pests and diseases to spread rapidly.
  • Sow hardy annuals for stunning early summer flowers.
  • Prune roses and take softwood cuttings.
  • Train annual climbers by tying wayward shoots and give surrounding soil a good water and feed.
  • Bring any tender perennials (or anything your worried about) inside to shelter them from the cold weather!
  • Harvest any ripe fruit and vegetables such as tomatoes from the greenhouse ready for your winter dishes.
