During the coronavirus lockdown period, we've been retaining a small number of gardeners, maintaining social distancing measures, to carry out essential maintenance tasks and allowing our gardens to open gradually, safely and in line with government advice.
Autumn gardening tips
The perfect time to plant
Autumn is the perfect time of year to carry out any big replanting jobs, because the soil will still be warm to aid root establishment and moist from late summer showers.
Replenish your lawn after a long summer
Apply top dressing and over seed to remove moss and dead grass to reduce disease. You can then sit back and enjoy a healthy green lawn next spring.
Plant strategically with autumn colour for next year
In order to achieve maximum autumn colour, plant ahead now. All acers are a good choice, but the Persian Ironwood (Parrotia persica) makes a spectacular specimen tree, providing fiery leaves in autumn.
