Tender perennials need to be potted up and put under cover for “winter protection”.

Tender perennials include verbena, begonias, bidens, dahlias, gazanias and argyranthemums.

6. Pick green tomatoes

The experts said: “Any green tomatoes can be picked and brought in to ripen.”

One of the best ways to ripen green tomatoes is to put them in a paper bag with a banana.

Bananas release ethylene gas which is a plant hormone that ripens and causes fruit to soften.

7. Plant crops

October is a good time to plant autumn garlic and onion sets for the next year.
