COCKERMOUTH ALLOTMENT & GARDEN ASSOCIATION


The hours of daylight are now reducing rapidly as Christmas is looming on the horizon and the work in the garden becomes less intense and involves mainly tidying up or preparing for next year.


The clearing up of leaves to the compost bins goes on, the digging over the plot seems to take an age, the emptying of the compost bins and then mulching of fruit and shrubs is a chore. Cutting down in borders, cutting back buddleia and pruning shrub roses to half the summer height, is a job not many like, due to the amount of debris and the thorns. These pruning’s are best disposed of in the green garden bin. Have a look at fences, gates, tree stakes, ties, fruit cages and supports and repair as necessary.

If we keep our gardens clear of debris, we will reduce the number of places slugs’ snails and aphids can overwinter, thus helping to reduce the potential problems next year. Feeding the birds, providing insect hotels and hedgehog boxes helps the good guys through the winter months.


I have noticed the signs of autumn and 19 OCTOBER 2017 ISSUE 419 PAGE 66


winter appear to be much earlier this year. The first skein of geese was seen moving south on 31st August and a further three have been seen in September. The heather on the hills was gone by the middle of september and the blackberries had all but disappeared from the hedgerows by the end of august. Many of the rowans have been stripped of their berries by the birds, the haws are now ripe and some fieldfares and redwings have arrived to eat them. Are these a sign of a possible hard winter, or is that a sign that last winter was so mild that plants started growing earlier so fruit earlier and the wildlife has made use of the harvest as it became available?


Do come along to our next meeting on the 31st October at The Swan Inn on Kirkgate at 7.15pm for 7.30pm. We will be having a jam and chutney tasting, as well as discussing all things gardening.
