Check out our late Autumn gardening tips and advice...
Before the frost hits get your Spring blooming bulbs planted out. Plants such as daffodils, crocus, tulips, bluebells and hyacinths do well if planted between October and December. Use our Bordermix Topsoil or replenish your existing soil with our Multi Purpose Compost.
How low can you go...?!
Don't forget to look out for Hedgehogs in your garden this November. If you've built yourself a bonfire this will be the perfect place for a hedgehog to live so please be sure to check it before lighting!
Often raking up leaves can unearth a hoggie home so make them a quiet, undisturbed home in a corner of your garden using a pile of leaves or some of our Landscaping Bark and a wooden box.
Leave out some water in a shallow dish with stones in, they also love meat based cat or dog food too if you have some spare.
Raking fallen leaves and twigs is easier and cleaner in the long run if you do it straight away. Make your own compost pile with leaves, dead plants, old veg roots and soil- our empty bulk bags are amazing for creating your own mobile compost pile.
To quickly compost leaves start with a layer 6 to 8 inches thick of leaves, an inch of soil and an inch of manure/mushroom compost. You can also add some nitrogen fertiliser. Mix up the layers every two weeks and keep the pile moderately moist.
Planting garlic is simple and easy. Pop garlic cloves directly into a rich, well draining soil such as our VegeGrow Topsoil, in a sunny location. Set cloves root side down around 4-6" apart in rows about 2' apart, and cover with a couple of inches of topsoil.
Plant your winter onions in the same sort of manner - about 1- 2"deep. Gently push the set into the ground until it is just below soil level. Cover it with additional soil if necessary, gently packing the soil over the bulb.
Space sets 4 -6" inches apart within each row. Each row should also be spaced about 12" apart.
