Is it all over in the October garden?
Its October. Everything in the garden needs to be tidied away, cut back and neatened. It's all over, surely? Dont we need to see bare soil and pruned back stems? Not true, and definitely not the latter if you care about minibeasts that love to root around the stems and seeds that autumn brings. There's so much happening outdoors, it would be a shame to miss it. Especially as we're all set for an Indian summer.
We Brits are often prepared to let the glory of autumn slip away without even a glance.
