Plant new shrubs and hardy perennials now as conditions in autumn are ideal to help plants establish quickly. Add plenty of organic matter to the planting hole and water in well so they can put down roots all winter ready to explode into growth next spring.
Plant of the Week: Dahlias
These flamboyant Mexican beauties are a must-have in late summer, lifting borders with dazzling displays from August till the first frost. The range is expanding all the time, so you’re sure to find one to suit your tastes.
Big, blowsy pompom and cactus dahlias like ‘Rip City’ and ‘Chat Noir’ lend a touch of glamour; or for the simplicity of single flowers go for ever-popular scarlet ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ or purest white ‘Twyning’s After Eight’ – both with purple foliage. And for the natural look, try species dahlias with delicate flowers held on wiry stems: Dahlia coccinea is brilliant orangey-red, while D. merckii is lilac with a yellow eye.
