With more people returning to the office and going back to education, it would be easy to feel that summer is over but September can be the best time of year for warmth and sunshine (fingers crossed!).
At the time of writing there is greater freedom of movement (with social distancing) but check on events before you travel. Or simply enjoy our ideas for your garden … simple pleasures!
Hang on to your hanging baskets!
No need for an abrupt end to colourful displays in your garden. Keep your hanging basket flowers going until mid-autumn by watering, feeding and doing a little deadheading of faded ones. Don’t forget your containers too!
Discover antiques in ancient woodland
Combine exploring some beautiful meadows and woodland with a visit to ‘The Country Brocante’ near Horsham on 19 September. Browse antiques, vintage, interior and garden stands at this open air fair and enjoy refreshments while listening to music. Tickets on gate – COVID-19 depending: check before you go! Details here.
Walkies at Wisley returns
RHS Wisley gardens is open and a charming way to visit is with your dog for an evening stroll. You need to book a slot. More here.
BBQ steaks without mistakes
After a busy day you may not want to spend the evening cooking, especially if it’s fine outside. Why not BBQ a sumptuous steak then savour the flavour in the comfort of your own garden? This video shows you how to use a Weber sear grate on a BBQ to make the cooking – and the living – easy.
If you want to support your local brewers, the Crafty Brewing Company makes hand-crafted beers in a barn, on a farm, in the woods. Situated near Godalming, what started on a kitchen table is now a state-of-the-art brewery, with the capacity to make 100,000 litres of beer a month! Read their blog on creating your own pub garden.
If you’ve spent lockdown in your garden you might be thinking it’s time for a revamp or upgrade! We love talking design and landscaping, so do give us a call to chat ideas through. More details of our services are here.
