The Idle Mole Gardening School  

Autumn is in full swing! 
The leaves are falling and ‘Winter is Coming!’ Stay warm by busying yourself in the garden. 
Here’s what you can do in your garden this month; 
Continue to clear away fallen leaves, especially from your lawn and pond. Why not use the leaves to make your own compost or leaf mould. 
Harvest carrots, winter cabbage and brussel sprouts. 
Sow beans and peas. 
Plant spring cabbage and onion sets. 
Plant fruit trees and bushes. 
Plant bare root roses, there is a great selection of varieties to choose from at this time. 
There is still time to apply autumn feed and moss killer to your lawn. 
Plant spring flowering bulbs, tulips are best to plant this month for a stunning display next year. 
Cut back perennials that have died down. 
Reduce feeding fish in unheated ponds. 




We also have a series of Garden School Events and workshops designed to walk you through the most important gardening moments of the year. 

New Workshops coming soon!
