October Garden Checklist!

As autumn starts descending into winter, it may be harder to get out into the garden to keep up maintenance. Take advantage of a mild day and finish the jobs listed below to prepare for colder weather and a dormant garden.

2. Cut back perennials that have died down and add them to your compost heap

3. Divide herbaceous perennials and rhubarb crowns

4. Move tender plants, including aquatic ones, into the greenhouse

5. Plant out spring cabbages

6. Harvest apples, pears, grapes and nuts

7. Prune climbing roses

8. Order seeds for next year

9. Mow lawns and trim hedges

10.  Renovate old lawns or create new grass areas by laying turf
