Garden and Gardener's tips of the month - September

September is generally cooler and more breezy than August and the nights really start to draw-in, making the days noticeably shorter. There's not as much to do in the ornamental garden at this time of the year apart from the usual tidying, but if you have a fruit or vegetable patch, hopefully, you'll be busy reaping the rewards of your harvest. Make the most of the remaining warmth while you can by getting out and planting next year’s spring-flowering bulbs.

10 top jobs this month

1, Dig up any remaining main-crop potatoes before slug damage spoils them.
2, Pick autumn raspberries.
3, Leafy vegetable crops could require protection of bird-proof netting.
4, Time this month to clean out greenhouses and cold frames so that they are ready for use and net ponds before leaf fall gets underway
5, Divide any herbaceous perennials but wait for the first frosts to hit dahlias and cannas before lifting their tubers or rhizomes. Keep collecting and sowing seed from hardy annuals and perennials.
6, Using rain or grey water to keep up the watering of new plants.
7, Most perennial weeds are still vulnerable to weedkiller in early autumn. Applying products containing glyphosate when temperatures are still above 8C will ensure that the roots, as well as the top growth, are killed.
8, Stiil time to plant spring flowering bulbs.
9, Bring inside any tender perennials before any frosts have chance to cause damage.
10, Start to reduce the frequency of houseplant watering
