Beds & Borders
Borders and flower beds form an important part of the garden, providing colour and form through the changing seasons, as well as food and shelter for a vast range of wildlife. The size and shape variations are endless and the choice of plants and planting styles vast. A well cared for border is an asset to any home. Whether low-maintenance or not, all borders require an element of upkeep and general care.
Just Plants provide a comprehensive maintenance service for all of your planted areas throughout the year covering planting, weed control, pruning and splitting plants. We are also able to supply a selection of hardy perennials suitable for local gardens.
Any cuttings and waste materials can be removed to the local recycling site if required.,
Tasks for Autumn:
September generally marks the start of the cooler and noticeably shorter days. It's an ideal time to get out planting spring flowering bulbs for next year. Jobs for this month include:
Divide herbaceous perennials
Collect and sow seed from hardy annuals and perennials
keep on top of weed clearance as the damper weather will encourage them to multiply
Cut back plants that have finished to maintain a tidy border
