So here goes, a few tips for September;
Lawns; It's a good time to sow grass seed at the moment as the temperature cools down but the soil remains warm plus, the weather is now a bit wetter. So if you were too late earlier on to get on with your lawn get on with it now!! (or you can ask me to do it for you!)
If you have an established lawn now is the time to aerate it ( you can buy spiky things to attach to you boots). Scarify too then apply a top dressing and if there are any repairs to do you can get on with this too.
Lift the cutting height of you lawnmower.
Beds and borders; Give them an autumn BOOST of colour. Cut away any overgrown summer perennials and go and buy some instant colour from the garden centre to liven it up a bit. It's also time to move any overgrown shrubs to a new place and divide congested perennial.
More next month. I'm off back up to Scotland for a week but I'll join you later in October for more jobs for you!!
