DUG'S TIPS FOR AUTUMN / WINTER

Apply frost protection to the crowns of tender perennials – Autumn Gold acts a warm blanket keeping heat in the soil and helping to prevent early frost damage.

In the new year add a further sprinkling of Super-Dug Extra to help boost the nutrient content of your soil to prepare for the new spring growth.

DUG'S DIARY AND SEASONAL TIPS

With this Summer being a bit of a wash out, Autumn months are going to be a crucial time for restoring, conditioning and replenishing your garden. The wet Summer with many days of heavy rain will have no doubt left the soil ‘tired', ‘run down' and "washed out".

THE COMING MONTHS

A phrase Super-Dug has used and heard over the years is “Good gardeners garden in the Autumn.” Time and effort now will be repaid in the Spring with a well nourished soil reaping great results for all plants, flowers and vegetables. Adding nutrients now will also help plants combat the harsh winter months whilst providing seasonal plants with nutrients for storage and promoting healthy Spring Growth.

DUG'S TIPS FOR AUTUMN

Return houseplants and Cacti to the warmth of your home.

Plant Spring bulbs (early September) with the exception of Tulips, which are best planted at the beginning of November.

Restore lawn after summer ‘wear and tear' – spike areas of great compaction and scarify if necessary.

To add a dash of colour at this time try planting some ‘cheerful' perennials.
