Autumntime is Gardentime!

There is a widespread belief that the gardening year is drawing to a close. The summer is ending, the children are going back to school, the dark evenings are on the way, temperatures fall and the long dreary winter beckons.

We sometimes forget that there is another season between summer and winter Autumn! Autumn is the real beginning of the new gardening year. Gardening in autumn is exciting, easy and rewarding! Powerscourt Estate
  • After the summer the soil is at its warmest and it’s much less likely to dry out. So conditions are ideal for the roots to grow and develop. All the action is taking place below the ground. Roots will grow and spread throughout the autumn and into the winter. By next spring the plant will have a very well developed root system that can draw water and nutrient from a wide area.
  • If you wait until next spring the plants roots will be confined to the shape of the pot and you will have to make sure that it is kept well watered until the root system establishes itself.Autumn Ireland
  • The autumn months of September, October and November are usually warmer than the spring months. Yet the vast majority of us continue to plant in the spring.
