My October gardening jobs include 'Game of Throne-ing' my flowers – my method gets me new plants next year for free | The Sun

THE noble art of gardening has taken on dramatic proportions for one green-fingered fan.

He has compared one of his jobs to the cut and thrust, and dastardly villainy of popular TV series the Game of Thrones.

But he hopes his method will bring him lots of new plants next year for free.

Grant (@gardeninggrant) is new to the planting cycle but he's loving it.

“A beginner gardening gay trying to find his groove. All tips and tricks welcome," is his biog on TikTok.

In his post, he sets out his gardening tasks for October, and he has to make some brutal decisions.

“A few little October gardening jobs in this balmy fall weather," he said.

"Storing dahlias, storing zinnia seeds, and saying goodbye to the flowers that I never want to see again.”

One of them was facing the chop: “Right now I’m Game of Throne-ing my dahlias.

“I’m choosing which ones I’m going to store and which ones are out.

"This one is staying, and I hate this one, it’s out," he said, with the figure of sadistic Prince Joffrey making an appearance.

Those that survived, would live to see another day.

“Now I’m not going to dig those up for another few weeks until the frost and then I’ll store them in the basement."

His hydrangeas were staying, but he advised not pruning those until the spring.

Zinneas could also sigh in relief as they were also to flower the next year.

Once they had dried on the stem, Grant planned to bring them inside and plant them again next year for free, first snipping off the flowers and collecting the seeds.

But it was bad news for two other plants: “These cannas are staying in the ground because they did not make the cut for next year.

“These cosmos didn’t make the cut either but I’m going to let them stay until the snow kills them."

Planters were not in danger, however:“I’m going to leave these as is and work them into my Halloween decorations," he promised.

Commenters shared their views.
