Harvest apples and pears
Harvesting top fruit such as apples and pears begins in earnest in September. Look for fruit falling under the tree (windfalls) to indicate which apples are ready, but also assess taste and texture to determine whether they are ready for harvesting. Quince and medlars are also picked now.
It's also a good time to order new fruit trees, canes and bushes.
Sow vegetables for overwintering, to mature next spring, including turnip, spinach, winter lettuce, Oriental vegetables and plant overwintering onion sets.
