There is still plenty of work to be done in the garden in October. Not only is there a lot of lifting and clearing of summer flowering items, but many vegetable varieties can be sown at this time too.
Why not grow autumn-planting garlic? Plant your garlic cloves from October to January and you will be able to harvest your garlic May to July the following year. Autumn-planting onion and shallot sets can be planted in a well-drained, sunny position, up to the end of November too.
Lift and store root crops such as carrots, beetroot and potatoes. Cut down asparagus to near ground level.
