Autumn and what to plant

The temperature is dropping, days are getting shorter and the leaves are changing colour – all signs that summer is drawing to a close. But when does autumn actually start? Well it’s the 1st September if you go by the meteorological calendar or 23rd September based on the Astronimical calendar. If, like us, you’re wondering what the difference is, the meteorological calendar is more simplified and splits up the four seasons into three month blocks and the Astronomers base the date of the seasons upon autumnal equinox, when night and day are roughly equal length. So either way, Autumn is upon us! And its time to start thinking about your Spring garden as our glorious spring flowers like to be planted throughout the Autumn (Sept, Oct, Nov).

Here’s a little break down of what you can plant this Autumn to have some colour in your garden month by month:

January-February: CrocusSnowdrops, 

February-March: Narcissus,  Leucojum Aestivum

 

March-April: Tulips,  Cyclamen,  Puschkinia, Anemone Blanda, Chinodoxa,
Erythronium Pagoda

April- May: FritillariaHyacinthoides Non-Scripta ‘Blue Bells’, Alliums

May +: CamassiaEremurus

Martagon Lilies

We now have our stunning Martagons available to order as well. With a few new varieties to choose from. Our Martagons will also be dispatched in the Autumn for planting throughout the months of Sept, Oct and Nov. Martagons are ideal for woodland type gardens. These special Lilies grow especially well in dappled shade in Humus-rich, Alkaline soil. They naturalize really well and are long lived and hardy.

 

Happy Gardening!

Planning ahead

You may be thinking that Summer has only just arrived and we really haven’t seen much of it so far. But unfortunately, Autumn will be upon us before we know it and that’s when you need to start thinking about your garden for the following Spring… Yes! I said Spring, 2016!! Seems a long way off but if you want your garden to look full of colour and packed with your favourite flowers then thinking ahead and planting your bulbs in the Autumn is what you need to do. If you’re not an experienced gardener, that’s not a problem as we provide growing and planting instructions on most varieties on our website at www.hartsnursery.co.uk.

Have you thought about your colour scheme for your garden or the height of the flowers you would like? Or do you need to know what flowers grow best in what conditions? Some prefer sunnier positions and some like growing in the shade. Perhaps your garden has an Alkaline or Acidic Soil? If so, our website can advise on this or you can just drop us an email at info@hartsnursery.co.uk and ask us! We are happy to help!

We have some great offers on Spring bulbs this year with many new collections being added to our website to make the decision-making easier. We’ve grouped certain varieties together based on what we think complement each other at a special offer price! Check out our fabulous offers on Alliums too!! It seems these majestic, pom-pom like flowers are not only attracting the bees as we’ve noticed that Alliums have been super popular this year! There’s plenty of new varieties for you to choose from.

Autumn is also the time to plant your Martagon Lily Bulbs. Now, these spectacular species grow well in woodland type gardens and especially well in dappled shade in a humus-rich, Alkaline soil. Another great feature about these Lilies is that they naturalize really well and are long-lived and particularly hardy! Again, we have some amazing new varieties for you to choose from on our website. Order now to avoid disappointment as we have limited stock!

Happy planning and planting from hartsnursery.co.uk
