September in the Garden

By September I am looking at the garden with the most important eye and see just problems. It’s the month I move plants around and chuck some out. Its fortunate that September and fall generally, is a great time, (feasible the finest) for planting, shrubs and herbaceous plants of all types; the soil is still warm and the inevitable fall rain will bed in the new plants.

I understand that spring is the popular time for planting but Autumn is the very best time, especially as we typically get such very dry spells in spring. I plant and move around, and I understand I am become consumed when I find myself moving numerous plants merely a couple of feet one way or another. As a plant fully grown in some cases it outgrows it’s spot, or controls, or don’t do extremely well therefore I take stock. I have actually dug out two shrubs, moved one; binned one. There comes a point when a plant which hasn’t done extremely well or is in the incorrect place isn’t going to get any much better, be ruthless.

September is also a great time for planting spring bulbs, more another time, and Alliumss; I love Alliums and not simply the lovely mauve ones which are so familiar.

Allium flavum which is stately growing to around.5 metre and it flowers for weeks and weeks, throughout the summer from June onwards. Late summer flowering Alliums look just fantastic with grasses.
