As we move into the seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness, so follows the autumn pattern of weather with bands of rain coming off the Atlantic.
It’s at this time of year that the plants are starting to shut down for the winter. It’s time to ease up on the watering and switch off the automatic irrigation systems in early October.
October is also a good month to plant container plants with ground now being warm and damp the root system will start to establish before the winter. This initial establishment will give any plants planted now a good start in the spring.
I personally don’t recommend the autumn pruning of plants. If we have a hard winter the cold can get into the cuts and cause damage. There are of course some specific exceptions!
If you’re able to, I would leave any pruning until the end end of February, as the worst of the winter weather should hopefully be over by then.
