With September coming in, we gave out the rootsandshoots Gardening Tips

  • You can extend the growing season of herbs like parsley and chives by potting the plants and taking them indoors.
  • To help with weeding in the spring, remove as many weeds from your strawberry beds as you can now.
  • Green tomatoes picked now can be ripened on a sunny windowsill. To help them ripens put red tomatoes or other ripe fruits such as bananas alongside them. Or to hasten the ripening process, put the tomatoes inside a brown paper bag.
  • Some fruit trees and plants can be pruned in September. Blackberries, summer-fruiting raspberries and blackcurrants fruit on last season’s growth. Prune fruiting branches after the fruit has been picked, leaving the strongest young branches.
  • With autumn-fruiting varieties, wait until late winter to cut them to the ground to make way for new canes that will grow from the base and fruit the same year.
  • Continue to deadhead faded flowers.
  • Potted hyacinths can be grown indoors. Keep the pots in a cool, dark place and water from time to time.
  • Renovate the lawn: rake it vigorously to remove any dead or dying grass.
  • While the soil is still warm, reseed any bare patches in the lawn that have appeared over the summer.

Happy gardening from rootsandshoots.
