So what can we do to keep gardens going into the Autumn?
As temperatures cool and the leaves start to change colour, autumn can be a beautiful season to spend time in the garden. When September approaches, don't put away your garden tools and retreat inside.
Try planting up some autumn containers. Autumn is the best time of year to plant perennials, as the soil is warm and moist. Choose Proven Winners Autumn Magic varieties such as 'Autumn Jewels,' Asters with a nice long flowering time, Heucheras that really shine in the Autumn, and Euphorbias have a nice structure and foliage. Mix them up with Erysimums, Ajuga, Sage, Carex and Tiarella.
There are plenty of autumn recipes in the Autumn Magic section. Choosing some warm autumn coloured pots and place them around the garden where annual bedding has finished for the year.
You can look forward to fiery oranges and deep, rich, purples to pretty pinks and bright blues. In the autumn you will be able to don your favourite knit, sit out with a hot cup of cocoa and enjoy some autumn colour.
