Here’s What You Can Prepare In Your Garden This October


  • Gather up any fallen leaves and store in hessian sacks for leafmould next year.


  • Cut down faded stems but don’t be too tidy: leave seedheads for the birds.


  • Compost any summer bedding plants.


  • It’s a great time to divide established rhubarb crowns to create new plants.


  • Move fragile plants into a greenhouse or conservatory.


  • Harvest apples, pears, grapes and nuts.


  • Prune climbing roses.


  • It’s probably your last chance to mow lawns and trim hedges in mild areas.


  • Add an aster to help brighten the autumn border: the free-flowering daisies include the lavender-blue Aster frikartii Monch and the Aster novae-angliae Harrington’s Pink.
