In The Greenhouse This September

Close greenhouse vents and doors late in the afternoon to help trap in heat overnight. This will ensure your plants crop for as long as possible.

Water greenhouse plants early on in the day so the greenhouse is dry by the evening. Damp, cool nights can encourage botrytis.

Remove shading from you greenhouse towards the end of the month so that plants get the maximum light available.

Clean out your greenhouse to reduce the risk of pests and diseases next year.

Top Tip:

Empty pots, old compost and decaying plant material can harbour unwanted pests over winter.

This Month's Key Tips
  • Plant spring flowering bulbs.
  • Pick autumn raspberries.
  • Plant trees and shrubs in autumn - will give them the best start to let the roots settle in before new spring growth.
  • Keep up with watering of new plants.
  • Net ponds before leaf fall gets underway.
