POSITION
Early autumn and a delightful time of year; some showers may be expected. The sun is no longer so fierce and days are getting shorter.
WATERING
Bonsai tend to dry out and watering is still a priority.
FERTILISING
Fertilising has to be done diligently if bonsai are to do well and to promote autumn colours.
DISEASE CONTROL
Pests are active and control is necessary.
PRUNING
Maintenance pruning may be done this month.
POTTING
Nearly all evergreens and figs can be safely potted at this time of the year. Post potting recovery is usually good.
REMARKS
As the days get shorter and the weather is milder it is an agreeable time to be in the garden.
