Wondering what gardening jobs to do this Autumn and winter?
Don’t worry there is plenty to do…
And you’re in the right place to find out because in this post we have a special info-graphic from our friends over at Capital Garden Services, which you will find below.
But first, some quick info…
Beyond the basics like cutting and clearing your lawn, it’s also a great time to create a kitchen garden (can you spot it in the info-graphic?)
Container planting is also a fun activity at this time of year and brightly coloured containers can really add some life to your garden. Autumn is a fantastic time for planting!
You can also make little tweaks to your garden to help attract wildlife. For example, if you leave a few potential shelters for hedgehogs they may make your garden their home.
You don’t need to leave shelters all over your garden but maybe a little corner of leaves would make a welcome home for hedgehogs and other wildlife.
Let’s dive into the info graphic…
Part 1 – Tools Required for your Autumn Gardening Jobs
The list isn’t too long of tools, and I’m sure that you can substitute some in and out, but these are the basics and what the rest of the post will assume you have access to.
Part 2 – Get Down to Business, The Jobs!
I know it can be cold outside but with the right clothing and enough breaks you’ll feel fine. Maybe even refreshed after spending so many days cooped up inside.
The fresh air will do you good and get you moving around nicely. See how many of these jobs need doing in your garden this Autumn. Be honest!
