Around the garden job checklist

15 - 21 September 2014

It's time to...

  • Raise the cutting height of your lawn mower and continue composting clippings
  • Wash out and top up bird baths regularly
  • Stretch netting over ponds and water features to prevent autumn leaves blowing in
  • Water houseplants less frequently and move them off particularly cold window sills at night
  • Collect fallen leaves from around roses to reduce the risk of diseases carrying over to next season
  • Order bare-root fruit trees to plant later this year
  • Clean out water butts and check downpipe fittings
