8 great Gardening tips for Autumn
1. Plant Bulbs
Planting bulbs is a great way to add a splash of colour to your garden. You’d be surprised how many different colours, sizes and types of bulbs that you can choose from. Autumn is the perfect time of year to plant them as they’ll have enough time to grow before they are ready to flourish in spring. Bulbs are really easy to grow although make sure that you choose a spot with plenty of sunlight.
2. Build a Garden Bed
A garden bed can be a great feature to have in your garden. It’s the perfect place to grow vegies or act as a focal point in your backyard. For the best results, use a good quality top soil so your plants get enough of the good nutrients they need to start growing. Also make sure before you build your garden bed to consider the location because the levels of sun and shade will determine which type of plants will grow.
3. Plant Fruit Trees
Australia’s climate and conditions are ideal for growing fruit trees. All they need is full sun, good drainage, room to grow and they’ll be thriving in no time. A good tip is to avoid overcrowding your trees with other plants or structures like fences as this will curb their growth.
4. Make Your Own Compost
Compost is a natural fertiliser that is great for your garden. It can help you save money and it’s good for the environment. Autumn is a great time to start making compost because many trees are dropping their leaves, which you’ll need to use. Make sure you get the balance right between garden waste and kitchen scraps in the compost mix for the best results.
