Flower Seeds to Sow in September
Vegetable Seeds to Sow in September
Try to find time to plant a few groups of Spring Flowering Bulbs particularly dwarf Tulips and dwarf Daffodils.
Remember this is the best time to divide hardy perennials in the main border
Sweet Peas can be easily forgotten but September 15th is recognised as the exhibitors sowing date. Plants 6 seeds in a 4 inch pot and stand in a cold frame until the Spring.
Sow another row of Radish while there is still time and a further row of Lettuce under cloches.
Replace Clivia on top of the bench from their vacation under the bench.
Finally clear the greenhouse of early Tomatoes. Ditch the soil and wash the pots ready for next February.
Continue turning Shallots to hasten ripening.
Pick remaining Apples - Pears aren’t quite ready yet.
If ants are a problem this year - locate the source and sprinkle ant powder.
Check downpipes and gutters and at the same time wash out water butts and lids.
Remove any leaves or debris from the pond.
Give the lawn its probable last cut for the season and scarify if necessary remembering to clean the mower afterwards. You will appreciate it next Spring when you come to use it again.
