Although September usually marks the end of summer and the start of autumn, it is still a busy and important month in the gardening calendar. Soil temperatures remaining warm and more moisture in the atmosphere ensures good soil conditions. This is an ideal time to keep the garden looking good, complete outstanding maintenance tasks and introduce new plants.
- Cut back and dead head (remove faded blooms) summer flowering perennials
- Transplant evergreen shrubs
- Establish a new lawn (roll turf or seed)
- Plant Spring flowering bulbs
