Grape and raspberry vines are tied up after their summer

With the long, hot summer months on the go, it’s time to get your garden ready for a little fall facelift and rejuvenation.

Here are some autumn chores to consider for a new lease on your landscape:

Remove all summer weeds from your garden and get it cleaned up.

Cut back all dead or withered flower heads from perennials.

Remove summer annuals and set out some cooler plants for the winter.

Plant the lesser known bulbs now like sparaxis, babiana, freesia, “paper white” narcissus, tritonia, muscari, snowflake, watsonia, nerine, polianthus, alliums, crocosmia, scilla and brodiaea.
