Greenhouse

  • Keep clean to prevent diseases and cut out any dead leaves and debris, keep watering.

  • Be sure to shut windows at night.

  • It’s not too late to sow a few salad leaves in pots for harvesting later. 

In the Garden

  • Keep dead heading but remember if you want some seeds for next year save some to harvest. Just wait for a dry day and collect in a paper bag and label.

  • Harvest your lavender and shape your bushes. Keep everything trimmed to the shape you want, do now before the winter .

Vegetables

 Crabapples

Crabapples

  • Keep harvesting and freeze if necessary, turn pumpkin and squash to ripen for winter. Keep your veg patch tidy.

  • Think about getting your access apples made into juice by finding local pressers which can then be frozen. A novel and interesting way to enjoy your bounty throughout the winter.

  • Make crabapple jelly with chilli, great as accompaniment for chicken.

  • Sow a green manure or mulch empty beds, this will not only benefit soil but keep weeds down.

  • Harvest and eat your broccoli, kale and chard.

Autumn flowers

 Autumns beautiful bounty Figs

  • Cut constantly, give away and share, the flowers will be more prolific. Mulch deeply to keep moisture and warmth in especially if you are not going to lift them.
