September is a generally cooler month and days begin to get shorter as we progress into autumn. It is time to begin thinking about next spring by planting spring-flowering bulbs for next year and focusing on fruit and vegetable patches.

Webbs Grounds team have compiled their list of the top jobs to do in the garden this month:

  • Buy your spring flowering bulbs early to ensure you get the best varieties available.
  • September is a great time to sow or turf new areas of lawn.
  • Sections of overgrown perennials can be lifted and divided. 
  • In September leaves begin to fall from trees, if your a pond owner we recommend introducing a net to keep larger leaves from dropping into the water and making it look untidy.
  • Give evergreen hedges a good trim to ensure they still look their best throughout the winter months. 
  • If you are planning to move trees or shrubs, autumn is the time to do it. 
  • Make, repair or purchase a compost bin - there will be plenty to put inside it.
  • Clean and tidy greenhouses to ensure space for tender plants to keep safe from the first frosts.
  • Pick autumn raspberries and plant new strawberry beds.
