Jordan’s Top Tips for your September Garden

Jordan's Top Tips for September 2019

There is still plenty to do in the garden in September so don’t get putting those trowels and gloves away just yet!

Spring bulbs are now available to purchase and I love them (we have plenty in stock). Whether it’s in a pot, the border or throughout the lawn, they are the perfect addition in any situation to add that splash of spring colour we all need after a damp, dark and cold winter.

The earlier flowering the bulb, the earlier it needs planting ideally so get your Snowdrops, crocus and early flowering Narcissus in first shortly followed by your Tulips, Hyacinths and Alliums around October time.

Top Tip: You can layer your bulbs in a container to create a pot of exploding colour throughout March-April and May. The bottom layer needs to be your tallest bulbs, usually a daffodil of some sort, followed by either Tulips or Hyacinths with the top later being Crocus.

Divide Spring and early summer flowering Perennials. Whether you plant them somewhere else or give them to friends or family, making free plants is fun right? It also helps encourage new growth, increases airflow and gives the plant a new lease of life.

More quick tips:

  • Pick autumn raspberries and enjoy!
  • You can now begin to reduce the frequency of houseplant watering.
  • Collect any remaining seeds from perennials and hardy annuals.
  • Net pots before leaf fall begins.
  • Dig up any remaining potatoes before slugs damage them.
  • Finally, cover any leafy with bird proof netting.

Excellent turf and topsoil delivered on time with a call to say they were on their way. Lawn was freshly cut on the day and has taken very quickly.

Wow, our first time visiting and I cannot wait to come back! Beautiful, inspiring surroundings. Products are first class and you can tell the staff who look after the place do it with love. We are so happy with our purchases and very reasonable prices. I’ll make a regular visit now! I haven’t tried the Potting Shed yet but heard wonderful things so will look forward to trying it. So lucky this is local to us. Thank you!
