Di's Autumn Gardening Tips

Our very own Di Fox shares her pro-tips for autumn gardening.

Autumn is a great season for knitting, reading and relaxing at home with family - but it's also great for gardening. Below are some of my favourite things about autumn gardening.

1. I love tulips, freesias and hyacinths. Now is the time to plant these so they bloom in spring! When buying your bulbs, avoid any that are soft or showing signs of mould. Small bulbs may not flower in their first year, so - big is better.

2. Sheep pellets are an inexpensive and natural way to add fertilize to your garden before you plant your autumn crops of broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, beetroot, spinach and Chinese cabbages.
