What to plant in your decorative garden
Propogating your plants without breaking a sweat
When it comes to planting crocuses in lawns, there is an ingenious approach that results in a harmonious and natural spread every time: it consists of throwing a handful of bulbs over your shoulder and burying them where they land!
What to plant in the vegetable patch
September is the last month in which you can sow or plant many vegetables.
This is the last month to sow any small radishes directly in the ground. Plant them in an open area so that they can enjoy the sun, since there is less of it in this season. After harvest, do not discard the tops: they are very tasty for soups!
It is the last call for rocket and lamb's lettuce too, which will normally be ready for harvest in early spring.
The seedlings will spend the winter in a sluggish semi-state of life and quickly begin to grow again in early spring. This is why it's important to choose the right variety for your specific environment (ask your neighbors for advice!).
Orchard and berries
Bag the grapes to protect them from wasps and birds. While you're at it, you might as well remove any leaves that might block the sun from reaching the grapes.
Plant your strawberries
If propogation is on your mind, it could not be more simple: take any young offshoots that have taken root on the runners and transplant them.
