BULBS  This is about the latest time to complete planting those bulbs you bought earlier this year. If the ground is too hard plant them in a pot and place them in their intended places ready for planting in the spring.



TREES & SHRUBS  A little judicious pruning will let light and air into trees and shrubs and now is the best time to do it.

If you’re scared of making a  mistake sign up for my ‘Pruning with Confidence’ training day next October. Never tackle major tree surgery its a job for the experts.
