    AUTUMN GARDENING

    During the autumnal season, a very important thing is to prepare your garden before winter arrives! Autumn is indeed the ideal season to seed, to transplant, to prick out seedlings in the garden.

    WHY TO SEED IN AUTUMN?

    Autumn is the most favorable time of year for seeding and transplanting trees or pricking outseedlings.Actually, autumnal plantations benefit from a wetter ground due to regular rain falls and from a ground which is relatively warm and more convenient for root growing. Thereby, the trees which have been seeded at that time will tend to grow better in spring and will become stronger and sturdier in summer, particularly in case of a drought.
    In addition, autumn is the most convenient season for planting flower bulbs which will add color to your outdoor space and garden in spring: narcissuses, tulips, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths…
    By using a garden dibber or a transplanter, you will be able to obtain a hole which will be large and deep enough (count a depth equal to two or three times the size of the bulb). Then insert the bulb into the hole by taking good care to put the sharp end upward and recover it with ground.
    Also, you can prick out and seed rosebushes, ornamental trees and shrubs, hedges, fruit trees… Opt for plants with bare roots, namely without any clods of ground fixed on it. Bare root planting ensures a better growth of your plants because the rooting process will be effective during winter.
    Furthermore, it will also be possible to plant shallots, garlic, white onions, rhubarb, cabbages, turnips, aromatic plants, hydrangeas, heather, climbing plants…

    With this proverb, French people use to celebrate November 25th, which is known to be the day of planting without any risk. However, make sure to choose good dry wood cuttings: red berry shrubs, hazel trees, dogwood, vineyard, forsythias, honeysuckles, weigela, fig trees...
    If the weather is not in your favour: rain, snow, frost, wind… GIVE UP planting vegetation. Keep in mind that plantations cannot be made during frosting or raining periods. We recommend you to wait for 2 or 3 days to plant if the weather conditions are not favorable.

    WHAT ARE THE MAIN AUTUMN GARDENING WORKS IN YOUR GARDEN?

    HEDGE TRIMMING

    Autumn is the most favorable season for hedge trimming in order to avoid any rotting due to the excess of humidity. Moreover, as the hedge has taken benefit from the summer for growing, it is thus more appropriate to do the trimming in September or in October. Also think about to clear up the hedges from dead leaves.

    There are plenty of garden tools which can be used for hedge trimming. If the length of hedge is important, you can opt for an electric hedge trimmer..
    If your garden contains few hedges, better watch out for a pair of manual hedge shears or pruning shears (for more precise but more tiresome trimming). 
    To clear up the cut branches, use an electric garden shredder or chipperwhich will avoid you endless back and forth journeys to the recycling center. Furthermore, the obtained residues can be added to your compost bin in your garden..

    TREE PRUNING

    Tree pruning allows to eliminate the dead or sick boughs and to increase the growth and the productivity of the trees.

    In order to do an efficient tree pruning, it is recommended to follow those rules:
    • - Clear up the inside part of the branches so it is better exposed to light.
    • - To cut not more ¼ of the size of the shrub.
    • - To avoid tree pruning during freeze period.
    • - To use a branch cutter to get a clear and frank cut of the boughs with big diameter.
    LAWN MAINTAINING

    To stimulate the growth of your lawn, clear it from the fallen leaves recovering it.

    The latter could indeed damage the lawn by causing a lack of light, favoring moss formations and creating dry areas with inelegant brown color.

    The use of a leaf blower will allow time saving and efficiency increasing. In addition, you will be able to recycle the residues in your compost bin.
    Also, think about it to make a last shearing of your lawn in November and then use a scarifier-lawn aerator to remove moss and thatch from your lawn allowing it to breathe.

    MAINTAINING A VEGETABLE GARDEN

    Homestretch before winter time, autumn is the ideal season to prepare your vegetable garden before the first frosts. At first, clear it up from weeds growing in between your vegetable beds.
    For more comfort, you can use an electric weed burner which eliminates the most stubborn herbs in a few seconds, without having to use any kind of pesticides or chemicals
    Then, it will be necessary to dig your garden ground to aerate it, and to ensure a better water retention allowing a good growth of your plantations. Also, on this occasion, you can enrich the ground with a fertilizer which will largely increase its efficiency.
    Moreover, do not forget to harvest your vegetables such as gourds, cabbages, carrots, zucchinis, celeriac, leeks, turnips, salads and spinach.
