Things to do in the garden in September
Wednesday, 5 Sep 2012 2:19 pm
Realistically summer is now over, the nights are drawing in and days will soon become chilly. September is the ideal time to tidy the plots, begin your spring vegetable and flower bulb planting and enjoy the last of the summer fruit.
Seeds
Sweet peas sown in a greenhouse now will be ready for early summer flowers next year. They grow as soon as the weather warms up enough, and will be ready for planting in early spring.

Planting
Now is the best time to plant spring bulbs. Get daffodils in by mid-September, with fritillaries, crocuses and hyacinths. Plant in large clumps or areas for drifts of colour in early spring. Tulip bulbs are probably best left until November.

Harvesting
September is the time to pick apples and blackberries for those wonderful home-made pies and jam. Gather blackberries away from the roadside areas to make sure they haven't been damaged by traffic pollution, and use a hooked stick to pull distant fruits closer.

Hedges
Hedges that don't flower in Spring should have their final clipping this month. Keep the bottom of hedges weed free. Plant new evergreen hedges mid-September to mid-October.

Wildlife
Swallows, house martins and other migrant birds will soon begin flying south for the winter so keep your bird feeders and birdbaths topped up to encourage more birds to visit your garden as autumn sets in.
