Our Top Autumn Garden Tips for ….
From pruning to keeping your lawn lush and green, here are our practical tips on how to keep your autumn garden in tip-top shape.
Tip 1: Why Pruning Your Trees is Important
Our expert Gardenologist, Dan, strongly recommends regular and corrective pruning, as it keeps trees, shrubs and woody vines healthy, eliminating some problems while preventing others.
“Pruning encourages new growth and vigour. Removing select branches lets light and air reach more parts of the plant,” explains Dan.
Dan also says that ongoing pruning is vital to remove any plant’s damaged, diseased, or dead parts. “When left on the plant, these parts become a harbour for pests and disease,” he said.
Tip 2: Removing Leaves is Key to New Growth
Raking up the autumn leaves is more than just keeping a garden tidy. By placing old leaves in your compost bin, you turn them into leaf litter, which makes nutrient-rich compost to enrich the soil and help retain its moisture, facilitating your garden’s growth. For even better results, you can mix garden leaves with your kitchen scraps
Tip 3: Nurture and Feed Your Lawn Now
Grass tends to grow slower in the cooler evenings of autumn, but the soil is still warm. These conditions make autumn the ideal season to fertilise.
Aiming to fertilise twice a year will help keep your lawn protected during the winter months, ensuring it is lush and green throughout the year.
Tip 4: Why Plant Fruit Trees?
We’re lucky here in Australia, with climate and conditions just perfect for planting fruit trees. Plant them in an area with plenty of sunlight and watch them thrive. Allow sufficient space for your trees to grow, avoiding overcrowding with other plants or fences.
Tip 5: Time to Plant Your Spring Flowering Bulbs
Spring will arrive before we know it! For your garden to display stunning spring blooms, start your soil preparation in autumn. Choose an area with good sunlight and well-drained soil. Mix in a few handfuls of fertiliser to maintain rich and healthy soil. Your garden will welcome spring with a display of vibrance and floral splendour!
