October Tips

The nights are drawing in and the temperature are beginning to drop. Those pumpkins you planted earlier in the year should be ready to be harvested – perfect for spooky Jack-o’-lanterns and hearty soups along with the squashes and other root veg.

Now is a good time to check the condition of your winter essentials, such as fleeces and cloches. Before the ground becomes too hard, it is a good idea to finish turning over the beds, getting rid of the last of the weeds, and adding in a high-quality compost.

October is also a good month to give the greenhouse and shed a good clean and pack away any items you no longer need securely and appropriately to protect them during the Winter.

October Planting

Autumn is her and it’s time to sow over-wintering veg and Autumn harvesters:

  • Onions,
  • Garlic,
  • Peas,
  • Black radish,
  • Hardy basil,
  • Brad beans,
  • Cauliflower,
  • Over-wintering greens and brassicas.

October bill period

On the 01 October invoices are issued and all tenants need to ensure these are paid within 28 days from the date of the invoice (29 October), if payment is not made within this period you will as per the tenancy agreement be terminated from the plot. The plot is then re-let. 

If an invoice is not received within a week and you have checked your inbox and junk folder for e-mails and you have ensured none of your contact information has changed. You need to contact our income team to get a further invoice to ensure this is paid in a timely manner.
