Trim lawn edges

Trim the edges of your lawn for a crisp, smart look to take your garden neatly into autumn. Use a half-moon edging tool to slice vertically through the turf in a straight line along the edge of each bed, flicking the soil away to create a sharply-defined line.

Plant of the Week: Japanese anemone

Plant of the Week: Japanese anemone

For long-lasting late summer colour and sheer good value it's hard to beat the cheery daisy-like flowers of the Japanese anemone. It's the perfect choice for small gardens as it looks fantastic at every stage of growth, from silky buds unfurling to wide open flowers carried high on wiry stems, to pretty bobbly seedheads and handsome semi-evergreen foliage.

Best known is shimmering white 'Honorine Jobert' with its central boss of golden stamens; other varieties to look out for include silvery-pink 'K√∂nigin Charlotte' with ruffled semi-double flowers, and two-tone 'Hadspen Abundance' in light and dark pink. They'll grow in sun  or part shade in any rich but well-drained soil
