Next month will be an exciting period for UK gardeners, with magnificent autumn colour and ideal planting conditions sustained until the tail-end of autumn. Meanwhile, bare-root and rootballed plants are coming into season, being popular methods of buying hedging and semi-established trees.

With this in mind, English Woodlands are looking to help their customers get ahead this autumn, with a new advice series published via their company blog, taking readers through some of the essentials for getting their gardens into tip-top shape for November.

The new series kicks off with a discussion of ground preparation, and can be found now at In this first post, visitors can learn about turf removal, providing planting space, and removal of perennial weeds, which can have dire effects on the establishment of new hedges and plants.

Readers are also encouraged to loosen compact soil by digging over or rotavating, incorporating air back into the earth, and introducing organic mulches and fertilisers, such as composts and bonemeal, to provide both fast and slow-releasing nutrients to the site, and improve overall soil structure.

With work on site preparation complete, the company will be expanding the current series over the next fortnight, with content aimed towards ushering in the bare-root and rootballed planting season. Readers can read guides on planting choice, based on intended function and available surroundings, and planting technique, with an eye towards ensuring healthy establishment and effective protection from common larger pests, such as rabbits and deer.

The current advice series follows a long line of specimen and planting guides produced by the company all of which can be found at
