Start off garlic
Plant out garlic, or start cloves in pots to transplant later.
Control vine weevils
Now is an ideal time to apply biological controls for use on vine weevil grubs. Target fuchsias, succulents and container plants.
Plant out spring-flowering biennials
If you sowed any spring-flowering biennials such as Viola, Digitalis (foxglove) or Erysimum (wallflowers), earlier in the summer, they will now need planting out – nip out the tips to encourage bushy plants.
Plan for early hardy annual flowers
Sow hardy annuals (Consolida, Calendula, Centaurea, Limnanthes, and poppies) where they are to flower next year.
Keep on sowing veg
Vegetables to sow now include spring cabbages, Japanese onions, turnips for green tops, winter lettuces, spinach, endive, corn salad, land cress and baby salad leaves.
