Its been a busy few weeks for us at Mow ‘N’ Blow, we have worked with fish, both concrete and real, been swamped by caterpillars, inundated with mulberries and been treated to the delights of Elderberry Rob. The sweet taste of Elderberry syrup and the high levels of vitamins ensured we worked hard!
It’s quite simply a great time of year to be gardening, especially with the recent warmth, long may it continue. There’s fruit burgeoning on the limb, the temperature is great for working outdoors, and it always feels like stolen moments, somehow good weather in September always seems a lucky extra.
And of course with this spate of warmth, long may it continue, the garden still needs work, the grass is still growing, deadheading and cutting back continues, and the leaves haven’t started to fall yet, so no thoughts just yet of putting things to bed.
Now is traditionally a good time of year for seeding your lawn and performing other lawn works but keep an eye of the weather as any seed may still need watering if we have a little dry spell.
If Lynn or I, or in fact any of us at Mow ‘N’ Blow can help with you garden this autumn the please get in touch and enjoy the warmth, long may it continue!
