As August comes to an end, there is still plenty of things to do in the garden to get ready for the changing season.

Start preparing for the spring with new bulbs, spruce up the grass with lawn seed, and get ready to start tidying up the falling leaves.

Still hoping for some last rays?

A new outdoor dining table, relaxing wind chimes and stunning late summer blooms should do the trick.

Lawn seed

Show the lawn some love

If your lawn is looking a little patchy after a summer of wear and tear, it’s time to make some repairs – late summer and early autumn offers perfect germination conditions so it’s the ideal time to re-seed small areas.

Spring into action

It’s time to start ordering bulbs to plant now for colour in spring. The delicate Snake’s Head fritillary grows in shade or sun and in a flower bed or through grass in a lawn.

The hedgerows are burgeoning with ripening blackberries – but brambles will make short work of bare arms or delicate clothing with their sharp thorns.

The garden variety is thornless and well worth making space for.

Buy it for £17.99 from Waitrosegarden.com

Fire up the figgy fragrance

The heady scent of fig leaves are one of summer’s highlights, but the trees are too big for most gardens.

Capture the fragrance with Aery’s fig leaf reed diffuser.

Leaf grabbers

My Celebrity Life –
Lift those leaves

Leaves are starting to fall but if they remain on the ground they will attract slugs and kill your grass – the quickest way to clear garden debris is with a pair of leaf grabbers.

Buy it for £5.98 from Tool Station
