1. Start planting
Autumn is the best time of the year for planting new plants. Air temperatures have cooled down, soil is still warm and its generally conducive to plant nurturing. The first step is to check your soil and give it the goodness it needs for growing plants.
2. Lawn care
Summer might have been a little harsh on your beloved lawn and autumn is the best time for it to recuperate. Make sure you use a fertiliser that has less nitrogen than what you tend to use in spring and summer. A fertiliser with the right nutrients will repair damaged areas and promote growth
3. Use leaves as compost
Not a fan of raking those relentless autumn leaves? How about ‘harvesting free compost?’ While leaves shouldn’t be substituted for a quality organic compost like Richgro’s Black Marvel Garden Compost, they can definitely be added to the diet.
4. Bring in the worms
Now’s the time to beef up your compost and fertiliser to attract our lovely little garden helpers: earthworms.
5. Plan your veggie garden
For those who are particularly fond of a patch-to-plate system in their homes, planning your veggie garden is another great thing to take care of during Autumn. Many veggies can be planted in Autumn so that they have plenty of time over Winter to grow!
