The colder months are almost upon us, but don't think that means you can forget all about your garden until spring!
In order to ensure that your garden makes it through the winter, Mark Stradling from Mark's Garden Services has provided us with a range of hints and tips:
Check your fences for broken posts and have them repaired. Do not wait for them to break your other posts or panels.
Weed and feed your lawn. It has had a hard time recently and deserves a little TLC.
Trim your hedges and if you want them reduced, now is the time.
As with hedge cutting, your trees need pruning from time to time, and again, autumn is the time to do it.
Fruit trees are pruned in either January or February.
Your shrubs will also need pruning to keep the shape that you want them to have, so make sure you do it in the next couple of weeks to ensure they look as good as possible over the coming months.
Protect your delicate plants and shrubs in your borders from winter freezing by wrapping them up or simply by just moving the planted pot closer to your house and then wrapping them up.
