Tool of the Month - October 2019

Posted in WOLF-Garten Blog by Lee Wills on 27/09/2019

October, the tenth month of the year and did you know? the sixth of seven months to have a length of 31 days.

A spooky month.. we wave a fond farewell to the glorious Summer and welcome in Autumn which has now arrived resplendent in colour with red and golden leaves yet somewhat tarnished by downpours of drizzle.

We love this time of year, crunching through the undergrowth in our wellies with a flask of something cheerful to take the nip out of the cool air.

It's time to start preparing for the coming frost and dust off your rake to tackle all those falling leaves. 

Here are this month's top ten jobs (according to Royal Horticultural Society):

  • Divide established rhubarb crowns to create new plants
  • Cut back perennials that have died down
  • Divide herbaceous perennials
  • Move tender plants, including aquatic ones, into a greenhouse or conservatory
  • Plant out spring cabbages
  • Harvest apples, pears, grapes and nuts
  • Prune climbing roses
  • Finish collecting seeds from the garden to sow next year
  • Last chance to mow lawns and trim hedges in mild areas
  • Renovate old lawns or create new grass areas by laying turf

Oh how we adore the harvest season, picking apples is a joy.

Nature's bounty awaits as will a plethora of delicious British puddings of course, stewed apples, apple crumble, apple pie - with a trusty fruit picker you really can fill your boots (and your tummy! plus a few containers!).

In a stunning twist to our usual theme this month's "tool of the month" is actually a bundle of tools.
