Elwin Campbell believes that this time of year can be just as enjoyable in the garden as in the heady days of summer.  As the garden begins to take a back seat after the busy days of summer, we should
do the same!  Put your feet up, enjoy the wonderful autumn colours and perhaps
make plans for next year.  Don’t “tidy” in the autumn but delight in the varied seed
heads until the spring and insects will benefit too, finding a cosy nook to spend the cold
winter months.  Of course the bonus is plants will self-seed and fill any spaces the
following summer and you may notice quite a few surprises too including some wild
flowers which should not be labelled weeds.  You will save a fortune too! Just let it go
naturalistic and see many more bees, butterflies, moths and birds next summer.
