As we approach the winter season and the temperatures decrease, it is important to provide support for the birds and insects that reside in your garden. Autumn and winter can be challenging for outdoor wildlife due to the colder weather, limited food availability, and changes in sheltering habits.
As the daylight hours become shorter and the growing season winds down, autumn presents an opportunity to prepare your lawn for the winter months ahead. After withstanding the unpredictable British summer and increased traffic during the holidays, now is the time to provide your lawn with the necessary nutrients and maintenance to ensure it is in optimal condition come springtime.
With the changing of the leaves and the cool breeze in the air, now is the perfect time to revel in the beauty of autumn in your garden. As part of the ‘Love Your Autumn Garden’ campaign, British Garden Centres has everything you need to create a breathtaking and blooming outdoor space with a variety of plants that thrive during the season.
Now is the perfect time to plant spring bulbs for a colourful lift as winter ends. Plant them now while the soil is still moist and warm to give them the best start. Planting bulbs is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy. From daffodils to tulips, snowdrops and crocus, bulbs planted now will create a fantastic display in any border or container.
