Planting in the autumn
The Autumn is Natures' natural time for planting trees and shrubs. The ground is warm from the summer, but above ground it's cooler ; this mean the roots will put on good growth now, rather than the leaves, and this gives them the best possible start for the next growing season. See the superb selection of trees and shrubs at the garden centre, all waiting to go in now.
Plant of the Week: Japanese anemone
For long-lasting late summer colour and sheer good value it's hard to beat the cheery daisy-like flowers of the Japanese anemone. It's the perfect choice for small gardens as it looks fantastic at every stage of growth, from silky buds unfurling to wide open flowers carried high on wiry stems, to pretty bobbly seedheads and handsome semi-evergreen foliage.
Best known is shimmering white 'Honorine Jobert' with its central boss of golden stamens; other varieties to look out for include silvery-pink 'Königin Charlotte' with ruffled semi-double flowers, and two-tone 'Hadspen Abundance' in light and dark pink. They'll grow in sun or part shade in any rich but well-drained soil
