There is still plenty of colour in the garden it just needs a bit of TLC to extend the season into autumn. Deadheading is key to keeping the plants in your pots and borders flowering and producing new shoots of glorious colour. A stroll round the garden with some secateurs or even scissors tidying away spent blooms will bring you in touch with your garden and ensure your plants provide colour for as long as possible. Summer bedding in pots and baskets still need daily watering and will benefit from a twice weekly feed, a liquid feed added to your watering can is an easy and effective way to do this. Feeding the flowering perennials in your borders will help to keep them blooming and maintain good health. A feeding regime throughout the growing season really does make a difference. Even if it isn't something you have done up to now, try it; your plants will repay your efforts and next year you can start the feeding early. There is no doubt that feeding improves general plant health, pest and disease resistance, flower production and overall beauty. Feeding can transform a 'nice garden' into a 'wow garden'.
