Why not wait un­til spring?

Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

● 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.
