Pauls jobs for the month General Maintenance

n With weeks of leaf fall to come use your mower to hoover up leaves from your lawn. The leaves make a great addition to your compost heap. n Take advantage of any dry days to paint fences, sheds etc with a preservative n Cover ponds with netting to keep out falling leaves. n Rough dig over vegetable patches and leave it in lumps or ridges to be broken down gradually by the winter frosts and rain. n Clean down garden furniture and store it for the winter or buy a furniture cover if it is to stay outside.

Flower Garden n Plant a layered bulb pot. Fill the base of a large pot with potting compost up to around 10 inches from the top. Put in daffodils and cover with compost. Then plant a layer of tulip bulbs and again cover with compost. Finally add a layer of crocus bulbs and fill to the top of your pot. Hopefully you should get a succession of colour firstly from the crocus followed by the daffodils and then the tulips. n Cut back all of the tall shrubs such as lavatera and buddleia.

Pauls

n Now is the time to take hardwood cuttings from buddleia, flowering currants and forsythia n Good time to plant bare root trees n Dahlias should be lifted at the end of the month. Cut down the stems to a few inches. Dig up the tubers and remove any loose soil and store upside down for a couple of weeks to dry. Remove more soil and store in dark cool frost free trays with a little dry compost if you wish. n Prune climbing roses n Clear any fallen rose leaves to prevent black spot from over wintering n Clear old leaves from hostas

Vegetable & Fruit Garden n Harvest any pumpkins and squashes before the first frost n Plant garlic n Lift any remaining potatoes before slug damage occurs n In the vegetable plot you can now plant spring cabbage and overwintering onion sets. n Plant new fruit trees and bushes. Choose ‘bare root’ plants, they usually cost less than pot grown ones.

GARDEN SERVICES

n Good time to divide your rhubarb crowns n Continue to harvest your apples and pears

Lawn Maintenance n By the end of the month you will probably have given your lawn its final cut of the year. After this it is a good time to give the grass a good scarifying with a lawn rake to pull out dead grass and moss.

This months poem... “The harvest moon hangs round and high It dodges clouds high in the sky, The stars wink down their love and mirth The Autumn season is giving birth. Oh, it must be October The leaves of red bright gold and brown, To Mother Earth come tumbling down, The breezy nights the ghostly sights, The eerie spooky far off sounds Are signs that it’s October. The pumpkins yellow, big and round Are carried by costumed clumsy clowns It’s Halloween - let’s celebrate.”

- Pearl N. Sorrels, It Must be October

BURY ST EDMUNDS THE GREENE KING IPA HABERDEN

The rugby season has well and truly kicked off with plenty of action on the pitches across all sections of the club. Big news off the pitch this summer is that the club has welcomes Servest as new main club sponsor.

A successful final pre-season match away against National League 1 Club, Flyde Rugby Club in Lancashire, put spirits high in the Wolfpack (1XV) camp. Just a week later though a 50-26 loss in the first league match of the season in front of the Haberden crowd dampened the mood. Lots of hard work throughout the week and a new determination saw the Wolfpack win the second game away at Broadstreet 20-16. With a solid win under their belts the team is now focused for the challenge ahead. Meanwhile The Wolfhounds (2XV) enjoyed a 45-25 win against Colchester and the Wolves (3XV) similarly 17-5 against Cottenham Renegades. The Rovers (4XV) and the club’s social team didn’t fare so well, perhaps a little out of practice over the summer, conceding 48 to their 3 against Ipswich YM. The Junior Academy started their season off well, winning a very close game against Framlingham College by one point in an early season friendly. Youth are back into the swing of things, preparing for the season with training for all age groups over the summer. The U16s headed to Netherlands on tour, coming back with three wins out of three. For the ladies, training has been non-stop in the summer months, as several new faces joined the league winning Foxes squad. New coaches for the Foxes and Vixens, the U16 girls too, and there’s undeniable buzz in the ladies section. For the minis the first week back also meant brand new kit for all the youth and minis coaches, sponsored by East Anglian Legal Services Company, Ashtons Legal. A brand new award, The Ashtons Legal Coaches Squad of the Week award was launched with the first recipient, the new U6s. The club’s much talked about new undercover seated stand is due for completion by the end of September, in time for tougher wintery months ahead for spectators.

Mini Rugby

The club welcomes new members, players from age 6 upwards, and social members of all ages. Membership details can be found on the club website www.bserufc.co.uk

Bury St Edmunds Minis have been enjoying training on Sunday mornings at the Haberden, turn out has been good and enthusiasm high after the summer break. Welcome to the new cohort of Under 6’s (year 1 at school) who have been having great fun learning new skills and making friends. The coaches have been undertaking yet more study to keep their skills fresh and to make sure that our players are getting the best possible start to their rugby career at BSE RUFC. Great pride is taken on the standard of coaching that every child receives. Last Saturday saw the U11’s turn to be the Guard of Honour for the Bury St Edmunds 1XV (photo attached). The U11’s cheered, clapped and high fived the senior players as then entered the pitch looking forward to one day when they may be running out as seniors in their club colours.
