If you've sorted the bunnies I'd take them off. The voles can get up inside them anyway. I don't like them for the reasons mentioned above.

The only other thing is deer, do you have those?. The bunny fence should keep hares out as well.

A lot of hardy perennials do well sown fresh, ie as soon as they're ripe. Some need a winter chill so they're sown outside or in a cold GH or cold frame. Some can be saved and sown in spring

There's a lot of info on this site about what needs which treatment, though not all seeds are on there.

 It depends who you're aiming at. For a hardy perennial and shrub grower like me September would be the time. But for a great many summer flowers February would be OK

Am I looking after weeds?

Hard to say whether they'll be any good. What I know as bedding asters are really callistephons, (that doesn't look right, but something like that). These are not them. and you're right, they wouldn't survive the winter.

Why does my garden look raggedy?

Posted: 09/07/2014 at 14:24

It's unusual for this area of the country (Peterborough) to be still green when others have gone brown. My ponds are still more or less at winter levels.
