October in the Garden

October things to grow

Watch your garden spring to life with these great gardening tips!


Garden jobs for October:

  • Top up your garden beds with a good layer of mulch. The weather is starting to warm up, so water retention is key.
  • Pull those weeds!
  • Consider some crop rotation to give your garden beds a break and rejuvenate the soil. Plant Clover, Pigeon Pea or Soy Beans for a season to give back some much needed nutrients. 

What to grow in October:

Flowers:

  • Alyssum
  • Cosmos
  • Dahlia
  • Impatiens
  • Marigold
  • Nasturtium
  • Petunia
  • Phlox
  • Snapdragon

Don’t forget when planting flowers, they not only look attractive but create a welcoming environment for all sorts of friendly insects.
