Autumn is upon us and the evenings are gradually drawing in and becoming colder. Winter is approaching fast. So what can garden owners look forward to in the autumn? Preparing for winter of course!
Hedges should be pruned for the last time in autumn, to prevent decaying if damp accumulates. Only cut deciduous hedges back as far as you can without creating any holes as these will not grow back over the winter and the hedge could look bare. Any tree leaves lying on the hedge should also be removed as otherwise the hedge will not get enough fresh air and sun and could rot.
