Stephanie's September Top Product Picks
September is often a cooler, wetter month than August but as previous summers have shown this is not always the case and can often be glorious. The days are however noticeably shorter. Whilst there isn’t quite so much to do in the flower or shrub garden at this time of year, if you have a fruit or vegetable patch you will be busy reaping the rewards of a bountiful harvest. Get outside and plant spring-flowering bulbs for next year’s display and make the most of the remaining warmth while you can.
