Autumn Gardening Shop

Look outside and no doubt your lawn will appear tired after a long summer and covered in leaves from overhanging trees.

Leaf Mould

Leaves are a valuable resource for gardeners, use leaf grabbers to collect them and then store in a black plastic bag. To make life easier an Autumn Garden Care Kit contains grabbers, sacks and a Bosmere bin bag loader. Poke some holes in the bag and, depending on the type of leaf, after about six months you'll have a wonderful mulch and soil conditioner.

Autumn Lawn Care

The tired looking lawn can be rejuvenated with specialist autumn lawn care products. Don't be tempted to use spring lawn care as it will be nitrogen based to produce soft new growth. To survive cold winter weather your lawn needs the the phosphate and potash found in an autumn feed.

Bulb Planter

It's still not too late to plant tulip bulbs and the Yeoman Hand Bulb Planter might prove invaluable with its automatic soil release mechanism. Plant at least twice the bulb's depth in frost free soil.

Wheelbarrows

Transporting anything around the garden at this time of the year will be much easier if you have a Bosmere Folding, or heavy duty Walsall Wheelbarrow with a pneumatic tyre. The latter will be delivered in a box to your door.

Brushes and Garden Vacuum

Afterwards a traditional Stiff Brush or Patio and Block Paving Brush would be useful to clean any remaining leaves off the path. 

Alternatively, a Multi-purpose Garden Vacuum can suck both leaves and flood water. It can also be used to remove sludge and silt from your pond. A Pond Grabber will also prove convenient if you have to remove litter and debris.

Fleece

Before the first frost don't forget to protect half-hardy plants with Fleece that's lightweight and easy to cut. It's porous and will also guard against bird and insect damage.

Snow Shovels

Finally, we didn't get much snow last year but you should be prepared with a Telescopic Snow Shovel that is easy to use and convenient to store or a Bosmere Red Snow Shovel. Both can be used for other jobs where a strong shovel is required.
