Autumn is officially upon us, and with it comes darker nights, cooler temperatures, and wonderful autumn colours. Make sure to enjoy the changing shades of foliage by taking a walk in your local area or gardens.
On the 7th and 8th of October, if you are in Northern Ireland I will be celebrating Coleman’s Garden Centre’s 60th anniversary with them! I will also be joined by fellow TV gardener, Frances Tophill. Most of the talks are non-ticketed, but to make sure you don’t miss out on Frances and me delivering our Gardening Masterclass together, book your tickets here.
Autumn is a great season to make sure your lawn is ready for winter. Make sure your lawn is winter-ready by scarifying to shift dead thatch, giving your lawn better access to air and water. You also should raise your cutting blades too, as the grass grows slower as winter approaches. Make sure to rake up any leaves to give your lawn more access to sunlight too.
I have a couple of competitions running on my social media channels. If you want a chance to win a Blower Vac courtesy of Yard Force, head to my Facebook channel at this link. You could also win a fantastic Yard Force Vita Tool Kit if you head to my Instagram at the link here.
This October, enjoy the start of autumn and the cosy, dark nights. For advice and my best gardening tips, visit my website and YouTube channel.
