Gardening diary - our weekly guide and topical tips for your English country garden and allotment.

Week thirty eight September 16th - September 23rd

Main crop potatoes need to be harvested and sorted out, removing all damaged tubers to the kitchen for immediate use. Soft fruit can be pruned any time in the winter after leaf drop. Begin planting out spring cabbages, wall flowers, winter pansies and sweet williams after applying a few handfuls of blood, fish and bone fertilizer and if available dig in some well rotted compost or farmyard manure. Standard fuchsias will need to be brought in under cover before hard frosts arrive.
