September in the garden..... 

As we approach autumn, there are plenty of things to be done in the garden. Continue deadheading and tidying up bedding plants to encourage growth. Hedges may be lightly trimmed. Bulbs can be planted now, in time for flowering in Spring. Harvest fruit trees. For any perennials planted on free draining soil, these can be divided and split. It is also an ideal time to scarify your lawn and apply lawn food. If you are thinking of planting Trees or shrubs, this is the best time of year to do so. 

The Cyclamen are in bloom, and are useful to add instant colour to any gaps you might have in the garden.


Summer Flowering Perennials.....

Moerheim BeautyAdd colour, texture and interest to your flower beds and borders from April to November with a selection of herbaceous perennials. They often attract bees and butterflies to their blooms, and make great cut flowers too. As they are incredibly versatile they can be used as fillers between shrubs, planted as groundcover beneath trees, grown in containers or planted on their own to create a classic herbaceous border. An easy alternative to annual flowers, returning each year and growing larger as they mature.

If planted early in the year, they can give an almost instant impact, while slower-growing trees and shrubs are getting established. Equally, they can often be easily moved if they are put in the wrong position.

Helenium Moerheim Beauty (Sneezeweed) - Dark copper-red daisy-like flowers from July to September. HEIGHT: 80cm


Spring-Flowering Bulbs.....

muscari mount hood          

The spring-flowering bulbs have arrived. As well as some NEW and interesting varieties this year, there will be a good selection of the traditional favourites.

Muscari Mount Hood (Grape Hyacinth) - A small clump-forming bulbous perennial with linear basal foliage and spikes of densly-packed, tubular flowers that are blue with the exception of those at the top of the spike which are white.


              Extend the season and carry on gardening throughout the Autumn whilst planning for Spring. Cooler days and warm soil make autumn the best time to plant most trees and shrubs.
