With the cold weather looming (already upon many of us) it is time to protect the crowns of herbaceous plants with straw or some dry leaves. If you have a tree fern for example, you can fold over the large fronds to cover the crown and then wrap in fleece and tie up...this will protect it from cold winds and frost. If your garden is quite exposed and you have a lot of plants in pots, you may want to protect the rootballs by wrapping the pots in hessian, bubble wrap, fleece or newspaper.

After the gorgeous autumn colour on trees and shrubs comes the inevitable leaf drop...so, don't forget to collect up your leaves and dispose of or bag them up and keep for a few months to create a leaf mould for your borders.

There is still time to plant your tulip bulbs. They make a stunning display if planted in a pot. I like to cram them in the pot so that I get a full on blousy display. It is up to you whether you lift your bulbs and replant the next year or leave them in situ. Some bulbs perform less well the following year if they are left in the ground or in a pot.
