Why not wait until spring?
● Autumn is the time when robust, long-lived plants form deep roots, and are given time to grow properly before next year.
● Warm, moist soils now encourage deep growth, while top growth isn’t too large to detract from root establishment. ● Spring-planted plants put on a late show and then have to contend with extreme summer weather without having much solid root growth to cope.
● Spring should be left for planting tender summer bulbs and other tender plants that won’t cope well with winter weather conditions.
