Time to start thinking about your autumn garden? Amaryllis Belladonna is one of the finest autumn flowering bulbs. It can be planted during the next couple of weeks (if your ground is workable!) Best places? The foot of a south facing wall. Their mature height is from 1\ft to 2ft, and they produce pleasant smelling , pink trumpet flowers. Plant tops of bulbs 4" below soil surface, a little deeper if in the North or a less sheltered position. >> Diversions 610 Homestyle 613 EXTEND YOUR HOME IN STYLE p283 Home Style Recipe Angling Reviews

Are you gardening in such conditions? Or perhaps you're just starting severe midsullfr problems. If you can water, here are some recommended watering priorities: Young shrubs (planted within the past 18 months). Also: Perennial plants you hope to keep for years. Newly planted (past year) trees and hedging, especially evergreens. more > Diversions 610 Homestyle 613 Home Style Recipe Angling Reviews

The trouble with artificial watering in a long dry spell, is the amount of nutrients that get leached away, no matter how gently the water is applied. Forget about the lawn and the annuals - the grass will recover in the autumn, and I'm afraid the annuals will have to be sacrificed if recurring long, dry spells force you to make a decision. Lastly: Groups of pots are more easily watered than sun-baked beds. Only plant them out when drought danger seems past. use what you have > Diversions 610 Homestyle 613 Home Style Recipe Angling Reviews

Conserve as much as possible. You may have been watering some areas of your garden very regularly over the past few weeks, assuming you're in a district of low recent rainfall. If so, hoe in a little extra fertiliser this week, paying particular attention to all those subjects which are still heading for their flowering period. more follows > Diversions 610 Homestyle 613 Home Style Recipe Angling Reviews

Although you mustn't use fresh tap water on your garden during the hot weather, you can make the most of other 'waste' water. Final rinsing water from a washing machine, washing up water, even shower water - providing it's not too hot or greasy, can all be used in the garden. Direct the water at roots and water slow;y, letting it trickle to sink in and use containers and saucers under container grown plants as reservoirs. > More Gardening on Monday BU BUZZ HAS MOVED TO 560 Home Style Recipe Angling Reviews
