We've had perfect growing conditions this summer for our borders and have been sent loads of lovely pictures by happy customers, so thank you!
Here at Garden on a Roll we are still busy sending out borders - October and November are very good months to get planting as it gives them time to establish roots and get a head start for spring. 

Exciting news! In our new glasshouse we are now growing our plants in peat-free, sheep’s wool compost produced in the Lake District which we have experimented with this season and the plants love it!
Take a look at this website to see their other products too:


We would love to see how your borders are developing please send your photos to or post them on our Facebook page.
Also get in touch if you require any maintenance advice for your plants.
Jobs to do in the garden this month :
  • Lightly fork around your plants as soil surface can get compacted
  • If bare soil showing it's best to cover with an organic compost/mulch to feed and look nice!
  • Rake leaves off lawn as could encourage bare patches and moss
  • Keep watering pots and containers also your borders as can still be dry
  • Prune roses by third if finished flowering. Do the same with lavatera and penstemon
  • Dead head perennial/cottage plants that have finished flowering and tidy up
  • Plant low bulbs between your plants for spring colour
Send us in pictures of your borders planted:
Thanks Amelia, Flora, George and William for sending in these great pictures, definitely gardeners of the future.
This Woodblocx raised bed is perfect for our borders.
It's brilliant to see kids having fun and getting their hands dirty!
