Recommended tasks and hints for September

  • Sow some half hardy annuals such as Orlaya Grandiflora for bigger, earlier plants next year.

  • Daffodils can be planted now at twice the bulb's depth but wait till November/December for tulip planting to avoid the fungal disease Tulip Fire.

  • Sow some winter salad.  I have tried 'Arctic King' and found it produces fine salad leaves in the Spring rather than winter. 

  • If you want some new roses order bare rooted plants now.

  • Clear away the last remnants of summer flowering annuals.

  • Give your honeysuckle a final trim by late September.

  • Cover ponds with netting to stop leaves falling in.  

  • Stop watering succulents and cacti but not Christmas cacti.  

  • Stake Brussel Sprouts to prevent damage by winds
