GARDENING DIARY FOR OCTOBER & NOVEMBER with Avon Mill


In the Garden A


utumn is here - cooler weather, shortening days and the first frosts - but there’s still plenty of life in the garden. Late flowering herbaceous plants such like Heleniums, Rudbeckias, Echinacas,


Crocosmias, Japanese anemones and sedums are all doing their thing and many of the grasses are flowering now, (the seed heads can be left and look beautiful when we start getting frost.) We are coming up to the best time to plant (shrubs, herbaceous plants, ornamental and fruit trees and soft fruit) because the soil is still warm and the rain should help out with watering.


In the garden this Autumn….


❀ Gather in the last of your harvest (apples, pears, and nuts)


❀ Sow overwintering broad beans


❀ Last chance to plant autumn onion sets for an early crop next year


❀ Move tender plants to a frost free environment & cut down watering.


❀ Dig up outside tomatoes and hang them upside-down under cover to ripen…or use the green fruits for making chutney.


❀ Leave the roots of pea and bean plants in the soil and dig them in as they ad nitrogen into the soil.


❀ Plant containerised trees, the soil is still warm and more rain means less worry about keeping newly planted trees watered.


❀ Bulbs to flower in the spring need to be planted now. Experiment with different moods and colour combinations.


Down at the Mill …..


South Hams Arts Forum Arts Trail 14th to the 29rd of October.


We have art on the 1st Floor of the Mill and ‘Art Under Glass’ in our glasshouse. While you are on the trail, Avon Mill is a great place to visit when you fancy lunch or fabulous tea and cake!


❀ Plant up your pots and hanging baskets with colour, to cheer you up through the winter. We have a selection of bedding plants, which will flower through the colder months, in a rainbow of colours and mini evergreens and trailing ivies to set them off. Under plant with bulbs to give you even more interest and another layer of flowers.


❀ Clear fallen leaves regularly and remove all plant debris from the vegetable patch to lessen the chance of pests and diseases overwintering.


❀ Cut back perennials that have died down, and divide them if they are overcrowded.


if you fancy a walk while


here, the surrounding Avon Valley and


woodland are magical on a frosty autumn morning. Bring your four legged best friend for their complimentary dog biscuit.


The Gallery @Avon Mill is having a ‘Christmas Weekend’ on the 18th & 19th of November with mulled wine and mince pies to get your pressie shopping off to an enjoyable start.
