October Gardening Tips
Finish planting spring bulbs such as narcissi and crocuses - tulips can wait until November.
For a natural look, throw handfuls of bulbs in the air and plant them where they land.
Cut back perennials that have died down - do not cut back the less hardy perennials such as penstemoms and hardy fuchsias -leave until they begin to shoot from the base in spring.
Lift and bring tender perennials inside before frosts cause any damage.
Support tall flowers - autumn can be windy so make sure any tall flowers are supported.
Collect seed heads - collect seed heads from perennials, alpines, trees and shrubs.
Happy gardening to put your garden to bed for the winter
