What needs doing this month

                                               Jobs for September.


As autumn's dead and dying plant material is added to the compost bin give the contents a good turn over to aerate it and add some water if dry.


Dig up any remaining potatoes as there is risk of slug damage if left in the ground too long.


Plant up prepared hyacinth bulbs by placing close together but not touching in a pot of multi purpose compost, firm down and water well.


Now is a good time to scarify and aerate the lawn, use a rake to remove debris or thatch and a fork to make holes to allow air to circulate around the roots.
