Making the Most of Your Garden in Autumn

Making the Most of Your Garden in Autumn

Autumn might feel like a time you should start clearing up your garden after our long hot Summer, but there are no hard rules to say you should stop using your outdoor space. I worked hard on revamping mine into a place I could relax, socialise and work so it makes sense that I try seeking out some extra time there. And while it may not be the weather for sunbathing, there are still some things I can do to make it an extension of my home.

SUNNY SPOTS

Find your sunniest spot and make a mental note of when the sun hits it. You can then plan those moments around your daily or weekend routine to go sit and have a cuppa. Keep a cushion and blanket at easy access so you can dive outside without the faff of finding them. Us Brits don’t get enough vitamin D during Autumn and Winter apparently, so think of those extra 20 minutes of fresh air as a boost to prevent any nasty Winter colds and flu.

GET EQUIPPED

With all the above to do, it’s probably/certainly worth buying some thicker gardening gloves, a padded knee support and welly socks. It’ll mean you won’t be too reluctant to go out on those crisp and cold sunny days if you’re well equipped for all that nature has to throw at you!

 Here's some motivation to get you out in the garden and make the most of the lush autumn sunshine and make yours an all year outside space

GIMME SHELTER

Winter may not be the best time for sitting outdoors, but you can still make your garden an extension of your home by investing in a garden gazebo, fire pit or outdoor heater. Take a look at the gazebos available here: www.garden-camping.com/waterproof-airwave-pop-up-gazebos.html. I am sure an hour stargazing wrapped in blankets sat next to a blazing fire will help you find your outdoor hygge moments.

BE AN ALL YEAR GARDENER

The garden will still need a little TLC during the colder months, but don’t think of it as a reluctant chore, the little bits you keep on top of each month will stop that big Spring shakeup. Keep on top of pulling weeds, sweeping leaves, and planting Spring bulbs and vegetables. Remember to also bring pots closer to your house and wrap in bubble wrap when hard frost and snow are forecast. As much as I love how my garden looks in Summer, I like the contrast of how tidy it looks during Autumn. Turn beds over so the spring flowers can thrive and don’t forget to water containers regularly when it hasn’t rained for a while.
