Hints & Tips
This is one of the busiest times of year for the gardener so a quick word of advice: don’t be tempted to skimp on the autumn clean-up of the beds and borders.
Prune and trim back perennials and give the ground a good dig over between shrubs and then apply a good mulch around the roots and you will reap the benefit next Spring with healthier growth and better blooms.
Weeds left over winter will grow back in the Spring stronger than ever to suffocate plants and shrubs.
There are certain garden tools that are essential for the autumn, starting with solid reliable secateurs.
Cheaper ones can tend to fall apart so invest in a pair that are of a good quality and will last like those from Wolf-GARTEN. And Anvil Secateurs are made to deal with stronger woods to be trimmed.
There is a wide range to choose from depending on how deft you need to be and how big your hands are and they are made to last for years.
