The air is turning crisp and cooler days mean it’s time to get your hands (or gloves!) dirty in the garden. There are plenty of plants in flower if you need some instant colour, but it’s time to plant anything and everything with perfect growing weather over the next few months.
The first days that herald the arrival of spring will appear some time this month, and with them early bloomers like magnolias and hellebores. You can get a head start on the busy spring planting season now by planting the last of your summer-flowering bulbs, pruning camellias to shape, and fertilising grass for a healthy, vibrant summer lawn.
