Harvest happiness! What an amazing time of year. The trees are gradually beginning to transform during October and the colours within the vegetable garden are golden. Garden harvests are being reaped and those with the time and inclination are researching recipes for preserving.
So here we are, already dipping into the mellow days of early autumn when the light levels are often perfect for photography in the garden. Rather than mourn the loss of summer, there’s work to be done outdoors. Here are five tips to help you get the garden in order so that it will look good for the rest of the autumn, through into winter.
