There are many wild, beautiful, and fascinating areas of our planet that are diminishing due to human destruction. These precious natural areas require our protection urgently, before it’s too late and they are destroyed or lost altogether. There are relatively small areas of rainforests, peat bogs and peatlands remaining on our planet, yet these areas are continuing to be destroyed by humans.
The garden is fascinating at this time of year. I love the wonderful sound of the birds singing, and I just relish the scents of honeysuckle, roses and other flowers; even the scent of the grass is so relaxing.
If you get time to put your feet up it’s the ideal time to pre-order bulbs, corms, and tubers from specialist nurseries to plant this autumn.
This is such an exuberant and joyous month with Roses, Clematis, Peonies and Philadelphus flowers blooming, the garden feels decadent and luxurious. I hope you can enjoy time in your garden or at your allotment this month, there’s so much to do, see and enjoy!
If you are wishing you could brighten your garden with some containers, but are away a lot, or find watering difficult, don’t despair you have plenty of options: Lavender, Pelargoniums and Verbena cope well without a regimented watering regime, and Sedums and Sempervivums look beautiful and don’t require any additional watering.
The end of summer is often a magical time bathed in golden light and sunshine. Here’s hoping the month ahead is a lovely time, there’s certainly a lot to do to keep you busy!
It’s the perfect time to prepare and sow new lawns. It’s important to remove all weeds, particularly perennial weeds, before you start your lawn preparation. It’s the perfect time to evaluate your lawn and sow grass seed in any bare patches or lay turf if needed.
