Our Autumn To Do List
We have been more than a bit neglectful of our plot over the last few weeks, travelling in the UK and Europe for most of September along with other commitments have seen the list of jobs to do grow ever longer. Although not a fair weather gardener I’m keen to crack on with it and have some impact whilst these glorious sunny mornings are still with us.
So this post is really an aide-mémoire of tasks to be completed in the next couple of weeks.
The greenhouse; clean the glass and remove leaves etc. from the guttering.
Clean the area behind the greenhouse; dreading this having not done it properly since last year.
Empty and clean the water butt.
Empty pots and put them in the cold frame to over winter.
Insulate any pots that are staying outside and move to the back of the plot.
Mow and edge the grass paths.
Weed the bark paths.
And of course the ever present general tidying and weeding.
What’s on your allotment agenda in the coming weeks?
