Make sure you keep on top of raking up fallen leaves. If these are left in the garden they will cause young plants and grass to rot, as well as blocking up drains! This can be kept on the compost heap as leaf mould makes nutritious compost to be dug into the garden at a later stage.;;
Plant of the Week: Japanese anemone
Bring your late summer garden to life with generous drifts of Japanese anemones – the ultimate in low-maintenance, high return perennial. Flowers begin opening from late July and carry on well into winter: if you don't dead-head the seed-heads become little greeny-yellow bobbles dancing above the winter border on long, wiry stems.
There are two kinds to look out for: first into flower is Anemone hupehensis, including bicoloured 'Hadspen Abundance' and deepest pink 'Prinz Heinrich'; later they're joined by A. x hybrida varieties such as pure white 'Honorine Jobert' and rose-pink 'September Charm'. Plant as many as you can: it's one of the best perennials you can grow.
