Autumn may be in the air, but there’s still plenty that can be done, we give 8 handy tips on what needs your attention this October

* Plant spring bulbs…it will be here before you know it!

* Remove any dead plants and plant them up with some winter plants to give some colour in the dark months

* Rake up autumn leaves on a regular basis

* Harvest any apples, pears or nuts

* Shorten whippy rose shoots so that they won’t become damaged in high winds and also so they are ready to be pruned in late winter

* Give grass a final mow and feed before the winter

* Move any delicate or tender plants into shelter before the frosts

* Plan for next year, order your seeds now!
