Cause for celebration

Harvesting late fruit

Mid October is the best time for harvesting late apple and pear varieties like Commice pear and Bramley, Cox and Russett apples. Never pick apples too early, and to find out whether they are ready to pick, just hold the fruit in your hand and lift gently, they will easily detach from the tree if ready. ;

Plant of the Week: Ornamental grasses

Plant of the Week: Ornamental grasses

Prairie-style planting is all the rage just lately and is a gorgeous way to combine stunningly beautiful, natural-looking perennials like achilleas, salvias and rudbeckias with graceful grasses for a low-maintenance and dynamic display which reaches its crescendo in late summer.

It's a fantastic way to show off grasses at their best: after flowering, many grasses including miscanthus, tall stately Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' and Stipa tenuissima hold their seedheads into winter and look fabulous rimed in frost. Leave them all winter then trim them to the ground, along with the perennials growing alongside, in early spring before they burst into life and start the spectacle all over again.
