I’ve had some discussions recently on whether Autumn is a good time to be planting or not so here’s my take on the subject:
- Autumn is the best time of the year to plant because the soil is nice and warm after the summer and there is more rain around.
- Autumn planting also gets plants in the ground and ahead of the game for the next year.
- Autumn weather often stretches right up till Christmas so planting can too. But avoid planting when the ground is waterlogged or frozen.
- Autumn planting can look underwhelming! Perennials might be finished and dying back, Roses can be bare rooted and look like dead twigs and once bulbs are in the ground they disappear!
Remember folks we’re planting for the F U T U R E!
