Greensdale's Advice

October

Time to tidy up
Leaves on the lawn need to be cleared so brush or rake them off and put on a compost heap if you have one. If not place the leaves in a black bin bag, put a few holes in the bag, tie it up and leave it alone till spring when it can be used as food for your borders. Tidy Borders: Parts of plants that have died back in the borders can be removed, also any debris such as twigs & stones. Water butts & ponds may need cleaning out too.

What To Plant
This month you can get planting the following plants: Foxgloves / Hardy Heathers / Wallflowers / Forget-me-nots / Sweet William and Polyanthus. Plant spring bedding plants such as aubrietia, alyssum &winter pansies It's also a good time to plant shrubs & trees.

Dead-head
Dead-head faded flowers &un-healthy looking buds. Tall growing roses can be cut back to reduce wind-rock. Leave the main pruning until next March.

Lenten Rose (Hellebours)
Prune out the big old shoots &leaves to make room for new growth.

We can help you not only with these tasks but also with all other gardening jobs you may have to undertake.
