make sure the leaves and any stems that drop or you cut off are put in the bin because if left will spread.

Anyone can identify this?

perparing for next year

The mornings are becoming cooler and the season is beginning to change.Its not quite time over for flowers as there are many that will flower for a long while yet.Its time to plant those wallflowers in a spare patch to grow on and to get seed from the flowers as they go over such as sweetpeas.I am getting ready to get those spring bulbs planted before the earth becomes cold such as tulips and dig up those spring ones that need to go into shed as the tubers when they finish flowering.The Apple has been pruned and the grape vine in october and no later.The final clip for some hedges and to sort out the pond plants that need to be divided.Choosing the spring bulbs is my favorite and hopefully they will bloom next spring .A busy time for gardener.

They have to be in lime free soil,manured well or feed and do not prune for the first 3 years and water well.mind the birds do not get there first!
