September is also a great time to plant braodleaf trees, with many flower trees excellent for biodiversity. Trees that produce flowers and berries include sorbus, holly, malus and cotoneaster offering nectar, pollen and fruits to support insect and animal life.

Listeners questions include cutting back peoney roses, overwintering the coleous plant, sowing seeds of aqualegia, sweet william and lupins, dealing with ash dieback, sowing a hedge of holly, tips for helleborus and growing watermelon and aubergine in polytunnel.
