Gardening in october

October spoils us on the Lower Rhine with late summer temperatures. Gardening is a lot of fun there.
The last walnuts are collected. The outer edges are already done. All plants in the quarter have been looked through, pruned and sorted ready for winter.
Since everything is still clearly visible in the perennial beds, we are using this for the first time this year to selectively remove, move or reduce the size of plants. Then the pruning begins, as the new flower bulbs are already ready to go into the ground. There are many daffodils and new allium varieties that we plant among the perennials, grasses and ferns.
