Tips for your September garden

Tips for your September Garden

Now is a great time to divide perennials. The majority have finished flowering and preparing for the dormant season of winter. Large clumps of perennials can be divided into several new plants, depending on the size of the clump and what type of perennial it is. You can either pot these up and wait for them to mature a little before planting or they can be planted directly into your borders. They can take 2-3 years to get fully established but this is a great way of getting free plants. Why not pot some up for friends and family or do a plant swap to widen your variety.

September is also the ideal time to plant spring flowering bulbs. The soil is usually not too cold or too damp meaning the bulbs can begin to put their roots down and grow without rotting off and dying. Very early flowering bulbs like snowdrops and crocus should be planted first followed by most Narcissus, Tulips and Hyacinths. Finally, late spring flowering bulbs like Alliums can be planted a little later on. Or why not come into the nursery during these months to buy your pre potted bulbs and save the hassle.

Keep dead heading your summer flowering bedding and your late flowering shrubs and perennials for that final splash or colour before the winter months approach us. One final feed will help with this.

September is the perfect time to create a new lawn. As the temperatures begin to drop and the moisture levels of the soil increase, September is a great time to lay a new lawn. Why not try our Premium Seed Grown Lawn Turf at only £2.50 per roll per square metre.

And finally…

  • Pot up strawberry runners to make extra plants. They are extremely easy to propagate and you can easily make 5-10 plants from one mother plant.
  • You can now feed your lawn with an autumn fertilizer.
  • Clear pond weeds and net your pond in anticipation of autumn leaf fall.
  • Perennial weeds are more vulnerable to weed killers in the autumn. September is the ideal time to use a glyphosate-based weed killer to kill both the leaves and the roots.

Excellent quality perennials for my garden and good value bags of compost. Delivered within a couple of days.

Ordering from Singleton’s couldn’t have been easier, and the delivery was very quick, especially in view of the current situation with garden centres not being open to the public. I was delighted with the quality of the compost and the driver was very helpful in asking the best place for it to be unloaded. Couldn’t have been a better service.

A really good quality Topsoil and great Turf. We laid 15 rolls on top of 2 tonnes of Topsoil and all have caught well. The delivery driver was great with the children and showed off the crane.
