“You don’t want to plant tulips yet but hyacinth, crocus, daffodils and alliums will look fantastic in your borders or pots. You just need to plant them three times the depth of the bulb.

“You can start collecting seeds from hardy perennials foryear.
“Get your herbs ready for winter by cutting them back now.”

He added: “And it’s the time of year to start ordering bare-root fruit trees and bushes for planting from late autumn to early spring.
“You can start watering house plants less frequently – give them a clean and you might want to move them away from cold window sills.
“Clean out the greenhouse to get rid of debris and let in the weaker autumn daylight.
“Install a water butt, to make good use of autumn rain.
“Finally, move potted citrus plants inside over winter, keeping them cool but frost free.”

Social media users were thankful for Michael’s tips and were eager to ask him questions in the comments.
One person asked: “Will bulbs grow if you plant them slightly deeper?”
To this, Michael replied: “They will – but I wouldn’t go too deep otherwise you could get foliage only with no flowers.”
Another questioned: “Caterpillars have destroyed the leaves on my new climbing roses, should I cut it down for the winter or leave till the spring?”
Michael then advised: “Leave until late winter – I’ll do a video.”
Whilst a third wondered: “When do I plant tulips? Have a load of them in bulb form…. Thanks.”
