‘Plan it, Plant it this Autumn’, – don’t let the horrible weather we’ve had so far this year ruin your persistence to get in the garden; it’s not too late. Autumn, while perhaps less well known as ‘gardening season’, is in fact equally as great as spring to get in the garden and make a difference!

The ‘Plan it, Plant it..’ campaign launched by the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA), is aiming to tap into the younger consumer’s growing interest in gardening – raising awareness of all the autumn gardening activities people can enjoy – from planting, to autumn bedding, to trees, fruits and wild bird care.

For many, the end of summer often spells the end of any gardening activity. This year in particular, the activity never really seemed to ‘kick off’, due to such a poor season weather-wise, and so any ‘garden shut down’ is especially disappointing. This campaign wants to help extend the season and encourage people to carry on gardening throughout the Autumn as well as plan for Spring.

There certainly is a lot going on at this time of year, and here at Trevena Cross we’re in full support of extending the gardening season and encouraging people to see their garden’s full potential – and to enjoy it as more of a ‘year round’ space, not one that is enjoyed for only a few months of the year.

And if we finally see some weather that we’re so worthy of, this Autumn, it could be an exciting time!…
